As I often do things by the numbers (geek), I came up with a point system that factors in which of an individual's movies I've seen (as well as how much I enjoy or respect those movies, and also whether they had a starring, major supporting, or minor supporting role)........then figured an equation to balance quantity considerations against quality, and to weight the score as a means of diluting shear volume a bit (big geek). This score is then added to an "objective" skill rating, and to a personal appeal score, which is a purely subjective number that attempts to quantify how much I am (and to a lesser degree WAS) "into" an actor. The total of these three numbers gives the final score that the order of this list is based on.
As I see more movies (or as my sensibilities change with age), the scores--and thus the order--will change. I enjoyed making the list, hope you enjoy reading it. Polite comments are welcome (trolls, not so much).

The Golden Girls: Empty Nests (1987)
This has to be one true flub of an otherwise fine show. I remember one or two other poor episodes, usually involving inserted extra characters or relatively "out there" premises; instances where it's like the writers forgot what the show is about (Rose in the homeless shelter comes to mind).
But no other episode was quite as bad as this.
For one, the actual Golden Girls barely appear in the episode. Instead the audience is thrown into the lives of complete unknowns amid empty nest related marital problems. We have no relationship with these characters whatsoever, and would have zero context for what they're going thru were it not delivered in very stark and false-sounding dialogue early on. We have very little reason to care about them, a circumstance that isn't helped by the fact that they're written as generic caricatures, terribly acted, and with zero reality or real emotion injected into their dialogue scenes. Much of it bordered on painful to watch.
Throw in an awful final line, and humor that pokes fun at mental illness, and well......let's just say this episode was a disappointment and a bit of set-back to my recent joyful reunion with The Golden Girls.
