GSR

Something that probably only interests me, but which I posting nevertheless.

As you may or may not have previously been aware, I love organizing, making lists, and messing with data (be it quantitative or qualitatitve).   As such, one of my favorite year-end activities is where I take my favorite show and rank its season's worth of episodes in order of best to worst.  Forget top 3, I like challenging myself to put everything in order.  This really only works for shows that I know well enough to remember episodes by their title, so I'm not going to go entirely overboard, but I am going to do said lists for all 3 CSIs. 

I've been adjusting this for a while and I will probably still feel an urge to tweak it now and then, but I think it's about as good as it's going to get.  I tried very hard to judge episodes as a whole and not simply because of one great character/ship moment, but such moments often served as tiebreakers.  If a character storyline was woven throughout the episode, of course, that went a long way towards bumping it up or down on the list.

There's another version of this game, with considerably more interesting commentary, in which I pitted the three shows against one another on a weekly basis and declared a winner for best first ep, best second ep, etc.  Alas, that's somewhere on my internetless computer and I don't feel inspired enough to dig it out just now.
