In all fairness though, very few writers are successful at stories about time-traveling gardening tools. *boom-boom-chic*
I'll be here all night, folks. Try the veal.
Anyways, this is a fairly open ended question, which can be judged on a lot of criterias.
Based on more "serious" storylines, there's a lot to choose from. The trippy, mind-bending story of "The Sting". The open-ended, satirical, and even somewhat spiritual (and I'm an agnostic for god's sakes, no pun intended there) "Godfellas". The heartbreaking and suspensful "Jurassic Bark" (and the similar "Luck of the Fryrish" ).
Then there's the stories that aren't serious, but nonetheless pretty creative. Who in their right mind would come up with a time traveling story where the protaganist becomes his own grandfather. The Futurama writers apparently ("Roswell That Ends Well" ). Or the idea of time randomly switching around ("Time Keeps on Slippin'", and here I'm mentioning it for just that element of the story since I realize it had the more serious Fry/Leela thing going on as well)? And it takes some serious creativity to take a fairly basic concept (the main character attempting to save a banned tv show) and making it as ridiculously hilarious as "Where No Fan Has Gone Before".
So with that ramble over with, just about any of the mentioned episodes (along with plenty of others) could easily qualify.
