Whats Your Fav. Top Ten Episodes

Recommended Posts

It doesn't make sense if Mrs. Garry had the affair, because why would Mr. G feel guilty about that? I remember the psychologist saying specifically that Mrs. G. didn't have an affair but either strongly implied or stated outright that Mr. G. did. And I think the deputy also said something about how "she couldn't live in a world of adulterers".

The pregnancy test is the thing that threw me off, but I think that was used as a hook to get Frank to think she'd had an affair and thus go to the shrink and find out otherwise. After he does that, everything falls into place and he knows what happened.

The last scene in the interrogation room was one powerfully written piece. It reminded me of a similar scene in "Goodbye, Charlie" and also what Jose Chung was saying in his X-Files: "I'm fascinated how a person's sense of consciousness can be so transformed by nothing more magical than listening to words... mere words."

We need a transcript. . . . .

In no particular order: Lamentation - intense horror, gallows humor, a charming villain (legally, I'm not guilty!) a shocking death. Lamentation has it all.   The Thin White Line - as g

Thank you! I've always thought the same and I'm a sucker for gay twists so that the episode a little better to me.

I thought the same thing.

Okay, transcript found: http://www.timferrante.com/Abyss/Transcripts/mlm116.txt

At the shrink's office:

Frank: "Was Mrs. Reilly having an affair with Deputy

Kevin Reilly?"

Steele: "Mrs. Garry was a faithful wife. She was a

woman who needed to talk openly about an emotional

problem that was tearing at the very fabric of her

soul. Now, on the other hand, don't ask me about

Mr. Garry."

So she didn't really say one way or another about Mr. G but seems to be clear that Mrs. G. wasn't. And then at the end:

Reilly: "He said she couldn't bear the thought of

living in a world of adulterers... men like him.

It was one night. I know. One night. William Garry's

the best man I've ever known. There's nothing I

wouldn't do for him."

So it seems Mr. G had a one-nighter and that was what was sending her off to the shrink. I think the pregnancy test was there to lead him to the shrink, and perhaps being pregnant might have pushed Mrs. G. over the edge.

I can't believe that I answered this post over five years ago... and that I hadn't finished watching the show at that point!

Here is my updated favorites list.

Not in any order:

~ Lamentation

~ Powers, Principalities, Thrones, and Dominions

~ The Curse of Frank Black

~ Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense

~ The Mikado

~ The Fourth Horsemen/The Time is Now

~ The Sound of Snow

~ Saturn Dreaming of Mercury

~ Dead Letters

~ Pilot

I'd like to see how many people might have differing series favorites preferences now as opposed to back when they first answered!

I think therefore I will change my list to, "All of the above." :whistling:

1) The Time Is Now 10/10

2) The Fourth Horseman 10

3) Pilot 10

4) The Curse of Frank Blank 10

5) The Midnight of the Century 9

6) Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense 9

7) The Pest House 9

8) The Beginning & the End 9

9) Goodbye to All That 9

10) Powers, Principalities, Thrones and Dominions 9

The least popular ep on this list is probably The Pest House, and I always tend to forget how much I like it until I watch it again. I love the story of the villain and Louis Ferreira gives one of my favorite guest star performances.

Yes. Louis' part in that episode far outweighed his zombification in Dawn of the Dead! The Pest House can be further enhanced by watching it in the dark, like several of the season 1 episodes.

I honestly thought, when the therapist told Frank that the wife wasn't having an affair with the deputy but the same thing could not be said for the husbant, it mean the husband was having an affair with the deputy.
