The season 4 finale of Farscape -- "Bad Timing" was the most aggravating cliffhanger, if only because they cancelled the series immediately afterward.

/Loved the series.
//And thankfully, The Peacekeeper Wars tied up some of the loose ends.

I'd say better Doctor Who cliffhangers include The Tenth Planet ep. 4 and Caves of Androzani ep. 4.

...and Best of Both Worlds is only #20?

And how could a shiatty Voyager episode make the list, while no DS9 episodes did? The finale of season 6 was great... Dax was dead, Sisko was gone... way better than anything on Voyager.

NuttierThanEver: Dr Samuel Becket never returned home

That wasn't a cliffhanger, that was a solid kick in the nuts.

"For a minute there, I thought I was in trouble."

Blake's 7 had the harshest, HARSHEST ending I've ever experienced. Talk about being turned inside out.

The X-Files cliffhanger where Scully reported to the oversight board that Mulder had committed suicide was a better one. That was a looooong summer.

FarkerSnow: hawcian: FarkerSnow: What are 17 shows I've never seen, Alex? Can no longer consider myself a geek even if I work in software.

So which three shows have you seen? I'll wager a guess and say TNG, Voyager, and...X-files?

Close, TNG, X-Files, and Twin Peaks. Still unsure how I feel about David Lynch, and Scully's wardrobe through the first few seasons.

Farscape is on Netflix. You should be able to devour the series before the new year. Go now.

BronyMedic: Wow. Macross' The Messengers made it onto there? Talk about obscure, meaningful Anime episodes.

Adventure Time made number one? REALLY? Adventure time?

If Adventure Time made the list, then either The Return of Harmony part 1 or A Canterlot Wedding part 1 should be on the list.

/leaning more toward Return of Harmony, because Q.

/Q was also responsible for Best of Both Worlds part 1, in a roundabout way.
