What's your favorite part of the series?

I don't mean to ask you about any particular events that happened on it, but about the most enjoyable part of its run. For me, it is all about episodes 1-4, because those masterfully introduce most of the elements that would eventually become staples of the series itself, and they also have the time to showcase and develop a large variety of the cast (my favorite example of this has to be Strawberry's whole ordeal, and the changes he had to undergone in order to "adapt" to his new life full of liberties... but also responsibilities!).

I don't know, there's just so much to love about the first part of the Starting Season and I'm always finding myself coming back to it for more fun. It is truly one of the best parts of the entire series.

How about you? :)

Too many times in the series that I love, but I most seen are: The great game, I love it like rabbits of Watership Down do a great plan to deceive Vervain, it is the most fun and memorable moments that I have the entire series. I can not stop watching this particular episode. Another particular episode that I really like is "The eyes of Silverweed" is fascinating concept psychokinesis and see in action the powers of my favorite rabbit, besides that is the main character in this episode. What I have guarded in my heart   :silverweed
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I find the very beginning to be great as well. It sets up the start of the show nicely. Well, except for the glaring fact that you know nothing about their departure from Sandleford (I had read the book beforehand, but those without that prior knowledge would likely be confused as to why they're traveling in the first place).

That said, my favorite part of the series is what follows. I really like the episodes that take place in Efrafa (and The Raid, though less so). John Kurt's Woundwort is just too good. And the whole love obsession Hazel has until he rescues Primrose is mildly entertaining at times (and downright annoying at others, but details, details). But mostly I like the rescue itself. One of my favorite parts of the book is Bigwig's espionage in Efrafa as an officer. The suspense is fantastic. Though the suspense in the series isn't as good, they handled it very well and Bigwig had enough close calls to make the episode interesting. In addition, this part of the show has the most direct interactions between the protagonists and antagonists. You really don't see the same amount of conflict until the end of the season and then the end of season 2 through season 3.

To make it quick:

1.05 - Fiver's vision of Woundwort's past
2.01 - Woundwort remembers his past (during the conversation with Pipkin)
2.01 - One of the best dialogues of the whole series: "War isn't the way, General." "It's the only way I know..."
2.13 - The End
3.01 - The whole episode
