VOTE! Whedon's Finest

Select the best episodes from Buffy , Angel , Firefly , Dollhouse and Dr Horrible in poll for upcoming SFX special...

When you're talking about big names in science fiction and fantasy during SFX 's lifetime, they don't come any bigger than Joss Whedon. That's why we're devoting an entire SFX Special Edition to the man, his TV, his movies and just about everything in between (ETA: late September). In preparation for the ultimate celebration of all things Joss, we're asking you to vote for the best-ever episodes from his extensive TV (and online) back catalogue.

Are you a fan of Buffy classics like "Hush" and "Once More With Feeling", or does Firefly pilot "Serenity" float your boat? Maybe you've got a softspot for Angel episodes like "Benediction" or "The Magic Bullet", or love Dollhouse 's "Epitaph One". Or perhaps you think that one of the acts of online musical Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (we're counting each part as a separate episode) was the highlight of Joss's career.

To vote, pick out your five favourite episodes from the Whedon back catalogue. You could pick five from one show, or one from each – it's entirely up to you, and the order isn't important. To make it a bit easier, we've included a full list of episodes (just click the orange arrow below). You can vote on the comments thread on this news story, on the SFX forum , or by emailing sfx@futurenet.com . You have until Tuesday 10 August to pick your faves.

And while you’re here:
