The following is a list of what I consider the best to worst episodes, in order. These ratings are based on my 20+ year old memories of watching the show in its original format, catching it on CBS late night in the early 80's, and a great deal of re-watching from video. They are entirely subjective, and no doubt some placement goes against what accepted judgment there is. For that matter, if I watched a particular episode next week, I might rate it a little higher or lower. Generally, however, on a 1-20 scale this is how I would rate them.
