So, I'm educating myself, and want to check Wheaton's tabletop format. But I'll watch 3 videos at most. Which are the best?

I'm not after popular, I don't not care which game it is about, I wonder which were the most enjoyable to watch regardless of game. Which would be "essential episodes"?

After a day or so, when this thread reaches an arbitrary length, I'll check the 3 videos with most votes and one that will pique my interest (for purely subjective reasons).

And thanks to everyone helping me out.

I picked episodes based on the guests. I enjoyed seeing them play a game.

Have any of your favorite celebs been on?

The ones I remember best are:
Small World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9QtdiRJYro
Alhambra https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpsQbnup0oE
Star Wars:X-Wing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mxPFHBCfuU

I don't think The Resistance episode is a very good example of the game itself, but as an episode it isn't bad.

I don't follow television, podcasts, nothing really. If they're amusing in themselves, these are the best ones.

I'll put in a vote for The Resistance episode as well. Very entertaining.

My all time favorite is probably the Formula D episode, though. Hilarious.

I also enjoyed the Lords of Vegas episode from this week (the season finale!) featuring the Doubleclicks. But I love the Doubleclicks, so I may be biased.

Ticket to Ride (the USA one, not the Europe one) is my absolute favorite episode. I also liked Lords of Waterdeep and Dixit.

For me, the most enjoyable to watch have been:

The Resistance
Lords of Vegas
Lords of Waterdeep

Honorable mentions to Ticket to Ride, Dixit, Alhambra, X-Wing, King of Tokyo

I'm not a huge fan of Resistance, but I thought that episode was great (I bought the game because of it). The lords of Waterdeep episode was fun as well.

The most recent one (lords of Vegas) was awful because that one girl that wasn't the doubleclicks is probably the worst guest I've seen on that show.

Lords of waterdeep by far. LOW is my favorite because Wil gets mad at Felicia and throws a hissy fit. It's the most upset I've seen him get, and it's hilarious.

Another vote for The Resistance episode.

Others: Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Formula D, and the episode in which they play Zombie Dice, Get Bit!, and Tsuro. Not great games, but an entertaining episode (especially the Zombie Dice part).

The Small World one got me back into the boardgaming world since abandonning it when I left childhood.

Curse you Will Wheaton!

Munchkin one is great too, even though Steve Jackson is abit weird.

Second the Formula D episode. That Grace Helbig chick was so funny in it. I have however only seen a handful.

Definitely Betrayal at House on the Hill (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MINNKyE4fjs)
The whole episode is really funny and Michael Swaim is hilarious!

The only episode of TableTop I ever liked was the The Resistance one, because it introduced me to the game.

If I had to pick 3, I'd go for Lords of Waterdeep and Last Night on Earth (most enoyable ones because of Felicia Day and will) and betrayal at the house on the hill, because the game mechanic is very nice

I've only watched one - for Takenoko - and I enjoyed it. Harvey from Epic Meal Time was funny in it.

The fact that it hasn't been mentioned yet makes me think I should watch more Tabletop.
