One Eyed Jack, just a perfect Vice episode, has every vice flavour for me.Other brilliant ones including Smugglers Blues, Great McCarthy, Evan, Lombard, Milk Run etc etc

Season 1 favorite episodeEvan is my favorite: the characters, the story, the photograpy, especially at the end and the music-Peter Gabrielle is a favorite. I also love the Pilot, Smugglers Blues, One Eyed Jack.

S1 is the only season I consider to have NO bad episodes; there are eps stronger than others, but in the end, IMO Vice's strongest, most consistent season. That said, I'd say Milk Run is my favorite of S1. A definitive episode for sure, an absolute classic.

Season one is such a great season. Definitive Vice.Probably my fave episode in S1 is Milk Run. A classic. But there's so many other great eps like Heart of Darkness, Lombard, Home Invaders, Brother's Keeper, Calderone's Return 1+2, One Eyed Jack, No Exit, Great McCarthy,Golden Triangle, Evan.

The pilot!!! My favorite scene in the whole show - the famous night ride in the Daytona with "In the Air Tonight" playing.Most of the episodes in Season 1 are good.

Thanks for all the great answers! :thumbsup:I tallied up everyone's responses and have made a list based on your first answer only and here are the results: It looks like Evan, The Pilot and Milk Run were consistently chosen as top favorites, each coming in with 3 votes. There was one vote each for One Eyed Jack and Home Invasion. For myself, I have seen a few of Season One's episodes when they were running on TV, but not all of them yet. One episode I definitely remember is the pilot with the car scene playing out to the tune of "In the Air Tonight." That was awesome stuff! I have seen Evan too and vaguely remember it being (If I'm wrong, please correct me.) about Evan having some sort of connection to Sonny and Sonny being troubled by it. If memory serves correct, was there a scene by a gas station where Crockett tells Tubbs the truth about his connection to Evan? Anyway, I posted this to help me get an idea of what the stronger episodes are. I am still building my DVD collection at this point and will be commenting on the episodes one by one once I get them all.

These were closely followed by Smuggler's Blues, The Hit List, and Lombard.All of these eps made it into the Top 10 MV eps ever by the way, so you're pretty much on to a safe bet for some of the most popular eps here.It's funny that you mention you wanted to get a better idea of what some of the 'stronger' eps are - this was exactly my motivation for wanting to collate some of the eps' scores in the first place - and the opposite too - ie. trying to avoid some of the weaker ones, at least initially!

I have to say Evan is season one's best, well written, great music, and lots of background on Crockett, I'll go ahead and give an honorable mention to Claderone's Demise as well, as well as Hit List.

If that's the case then that would mean season one pretty much took over the list. I read that season one and two are considered to be the strongest seasons.What was the number one episode out of the ten?

Sorry the file I have which details all the votes is too large to upload.The top ep was Mirror Image (just shaded it over the Pilot). In order, the Top 10 (scores in brackets) looked as follows:1 - Mirror Image (9.73)2 - Brother's Keeper (9.67)3 - The Milk Run (9.63)4 - Evan (9.58)5 - Smuggler's Blues (9.58)6 - The Hit List (9.42)7 - Phil the Shill (9.40)8 - Redemption in Blood (9.31)9 - Lombard (9.27)10 - Forgive Us Our Debts (9.23)As for Season 1 taking over, yes according to the .org voting, Season averages were as follows (out of 10):S1 - 8.51S2 - 7.98S3 - 7.40S4 - 6.89S5 - 7.11I have long suspected however that S1 & S2 were 'over-rated' - several times in the ep reviews over there you'll find comments to the effect of 'not a great ep, but still v good, 10 out of 10'. In later Seasons the fans seem to have become more critical so that if an ep was thought to be 'v good' rather than 'great', it would never score a 10.

So Season One is ranked the best, and the top episodes in Season 1 are Evan, The Pilot, Smuggler's Blues? Hmm, I kinda agree, but where is Cool Runnin? Good music in that episode, with Noogie!
