The "Slow Donny" episode of Just Shoot Me was so well-written. David Cross fakes being special/challenged just cause he's too lazy to do anything else.

"Cape Feare" was the peak for the Simpsons, imo.

The Owen Hart tribute episode of Raw was a real standout. Well done and classy considering how emotional everyone must have been at the time.

I agree with TKOK about Through the Looking Glass, although my vote might be for that, the Season 4 finale ("The Getaway") of Dexter, or the infamous "Douche and Turd" (S8 Ep8) episode of South Park

FWIW, I also have a place in my heart for:

- "Wooly Bullies", S3 Ep11 of 21 Jump Street
- "Showdown", S2 Ep20 of How I Met Your Mother
- "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen", series finale of M*A*S*H

Either "In The Pale Moonlight", "For the Uniform", "The Wire", "The Visitor" or "Duet" from Deep Space Nine. A lot of good episodes in that series.

I think I'll take "For the Uniform" as the best of that bunch right now.

TNG: "Best of Both Worlds", of course, is the obvious choice. "The Inner Light" has already been mentioned. But "Ensign Ro" and "Disaster" were also fantastic.

West Wing: "Celestial Navigation". Honorable mention to the dual-episode "20 Hours in America", the dual-episode "In the Shadow of Two Gunmen", and "A Proportional Response".

I would nominate the next episode - "The One with the Embryos" - where Monica and Rachel lose their apartment to Joey and Chandler.

Can't pick just one...

Homicide S6ep4 - Subway - The one where Vince D'Onofrio is stuck under the subway car.

Twilight Zone Episode #41 - The Howling Man - The inability to recognize the devil has always been Man's greatest weakness.

Xena: Warrior Princess S5ep21 - Eve - Xena's daughter, Eve, kills Joxer. I cried like a little girl.

This. That was the BEST episode of a decent show and if Just Shoot Me was that good every episode, it would have been WAY more popular.

I loved the episode of TAXI when Jim gets his license (What does a yellow light mean? Slow down. Whaaaaat.....doooooo​esss....aaaaaaaa..​...yelllllooowwwww​.....liiiiiight.....mean? SLOW DOWN. This went on for a while and it was hysterical.

The series finale of Six Feet Under was really good in terms of closure, as was the end of MASH. Fo rthat matter, so was Family Ties.


The episode of Friends where they bet the apartment was easily their best.

The episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm when Larry ate the Jesus cookie and the pube caught in his throat.

And now for an Anglophile choice: "School Reunion", Doctor Who, Series 2, Episode 3. I could replay the scene where Sarah Jane finds the TARDIS - and then the Doctor finds Sarah Jane - endlessly.

I think even before Liz's death, this was probably one of the top ten Doctor Who episodes of all time. Now, it means a lot more and to me its easily in the top five with Doctor's Wife, End of Time, the Season 4 finale and Vincent and the Doctor. Ironically I watched Reunion a day before her death, I don't think I can watch it again.

Objects In Space, the Firefly finale. Jubal Early at the time was a most interesting new character.

I loved this episode as a finale. It introduced a fascinating new character, opened up the universe even wider and then made it clear that the crew was still out there, still flying. From a storyteller's perspective, ending on that episode was genius. It made sure those characters would live forever in viewers minds. That episode is a lot of the reason that there's so much passion for Firefly long after it went off the air.
