Those are my top favourites for season nine! As promised, here are Nightsky's "Top 6 Favourite Episodes" for season nine, in order of preference:

  1.  "Dog Dean Afternoon"
  2.  "First Born"
  3.  "Slumber Party"
  4.  "Do You Believe in Miracles?"
  5.  "Road Trip"
  6.  "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here"

Nightsky: The only difference between my list and Karen's is that I prefer Charlie, whereas she is sweet on Henry. The order of my choices might raise some question as well. I am in awe of the wit and creativity of "Slumber Party" and going to Oz. It's relaxing and just so much fun! The intensity and shock of "Miracles" is epic and the episode is mesmerizing, but Metatron annoys me in this episode, so it got edged out of #3. Maybe next year I'll switch them?
