My personal favourites are Chariots of the Dogs, What's New Beelzebub and The Tomb of Sammun-Mak.

  • Season 1 - Situation Comedy (It was fun getting that newspaper, the Record contract and the video tape of Midtown Cowboys)
    Season 2 - Chariots of the Dogs (Time Travelling! :) )
    Season 3 - They Stole Max's Brain! (Was interesting going through the suspects and stopping Sammun-Mak)

    These are my favorite. Out of all, it's They Stole Max's Brain
  • Chariots of the Dogs is the best among Season Two episodes, which is an incredible feat. The Season Two episodes were the cream of the crop, Telltale at its very best. It's extremely easy to say that Season Two is still say it's the best video game experience I've had in the past five years.

    It's also extremely easy to say the three worst have been the last three episodes of Season Three.
  • Chariots of the Dogs is brilliant.
  • I chose Chariots of the Dogs and What's new, Beelzebub? Chariots of the dog was also the first episode that I didn't have to use a guide.
  • I like many, but my favorite may be What's New, Beelzebub, since many characters are involved. I like stories where there are many characters who participate actively in the plot, or in 205's case, the puzzles.
  • Season 1: Abe Lincoln Must Die! Brilliant episode, with a twisted election and big lipped alligator moment.
    Season 2: Night of the Raving Dead. Loved the setting, the characters and the whole concept of Sam and Max turning into zombies.
    Season 3: The Tomb of Sammun-Mak. Radical story-telling and jokes, just loved it.

    Overall, I think the Tomb of Sammun-Mak is my favorite.
    As for the worst episodes in my opinion...

    Season 1: Situation: Comedy. It even stopped me from playing for weeks, it just killed the pace for me. Once I got past that and started on The Mole, the Mob and the Meatball, things got better.
    Season 2: Moai Better Blues. Still a good episode, but felt too much on the slow and unnecessary side. Loved the kid freelance police.
    Season 3: They Stole Max's Brain. Still great, just not as good as the other ones.

    Worst? The one that stopped me from playing, of course. : P
  • My rankings of all the episodes are in my sig.

    My top episode has to be The Tomb of Sammun-Mak, because it's just one of the most intricate (story-wise) and enjoyable episode I've played in ages...I thought it was genius to devolve into Jurgen's back story and to use the movie projector to transport the duo to Egypt, and there was even many laugh out loud moments. Very pleased with this beloved episode indeed.

    Abe Lincoln Must Die! is my second favourite for its pitch perfect plot, loving satire, the introduction of Superball and Abe himself (although not his best appearance). Playing the game is also one of the smoothest of the series, as revelations or item collecting move the story at the perfect speed without overwhelming the player. It's also very funny.

    Moai Better Blues, (possibly the most hated episodes of season 2 for others), wins third place for me for so many reasons. Instead of taking the pressures of a case, the freelance Police are eased into this holiday resort (wonderfully designed by the way) with strange portals, freakish babies and piranha infested waterfalls, all of which make up an eleborate and complex set of puzzle designs that are just ingenius. The pace for this episode is exactly perfect to me (in the style of season one, which season three seems to have thankfully returned to). So really, the only thing missing from this episode is some good jokes; sure there's humour but sadly not enough to rival other episodes...

  • Season 1: Reality 2.0
    The 8-Bit parts (especially for the music) and good puzzles make this one of the best episodes of all time.

    Sason 2: Night Of THe Raving Dead
    but only by an inch. Chariots Of the Dogs might have taken first place here but the Mariachi Song kinda ruins it for me and I love to rave to "New LOcation Unlocked (Midtown Remix)"

    Season 3: The Tomb Of Sammun Mak
    I really like the time traveling concept here and the elves and the death scenes and just about everything else. Really brilliant episode.
