Limiting each show to just one episode.
  1. Rhinoceros - Fargo, Season 2 Episode 6
    Db748e0a 763b 487f 9ec7 394bf4fdfcfc
    Fargo was the best show of the year and this is the episode that most stuck with me. Nick Offerman blew me away. EMMY'S FOR ALL!
  2. AKA WWJD? - Jessica Jones, Season 1 Episode 8
    8eb5f5e3 27b3 4799 bceb b4159080edb4
    I didn't love Jessica Jones but definitely think it's as good as anything else Marvel has done on TV or Movies. The only real reason I ended up finishing the first season was because of one character, Killgrave. A brilliant villain, hauntingly played by David Tennent. This episode, despite some clunky flashbacks, puts him and Jessica right at the forefront. So good.
  3. Nashville - Master of None, Season 1 Episode 6
    F93928a2 0e1f 486a a04f 958ca1c690b7
    When the series went from sweet and endearing to 'HOLY HELL HOW IS THIS SO GOOD?!?!?' Dev and Rachel have such great chemistry and this is the episode it really starts, so simply put together and wonderfully paced, in 30 minutes does more for the rom-com genre than anything in theaters this whole year.
  4. Electro City - Wet Hot American Sunmer: First Day of Camp, Season 1 Episode 6
    D34a97be 041e 49d1 874b d89f14ec2098
    I was looking forward to this more than anything else this year. So hilarious and energetic and unique and as you can tell it surpassed my every expectation. This episode was a personal highlight, letting David Wain and Michael Showalter unleash their into theater geek. Legendary.
  5. Person to Person - Mad Men, Season 7 Episode 14
    5429e344 419d 4a6a aa90 3f04979178f1
    Mad Men had the best ending to a series I've ever seen. Very carefully considered those words and I stand by it. The final scene is the sort of thing that so reinforces the shows themes and everything that came before it, you can't help but watch in awe.
  6. Let's Find Out - Bojack Horseman, Season 2 Episode 8
    52a727fe 5c86 4198 a2b0 44efd0f49e1f
    Bojack's second season was such a mish mosh of tones and emotions, so dark but so genuinely delightful. This episode specifically pushes the series' reality to the brink of implosion. Ridiculously goofy, yet backed up by a clever commentary and heartfelt message. Andrew Garfield ftw.
  7. Election Night - Veep, Season 4 Episode 10
    Eec758e6 2d3c 4897 bfb4 cdac8e67a9e6
    Even for Veep this was a creative direction I never saw coming. The quick pace of Washington, DC is of course what gives the series it's blood thirsty vitriol. Well imagine that cranked up and then condensed to just 1 night. The night in question, election night. JLD and company dazzle.
  8. A Rickle In Time - Rick and Morty, Season 2 Episode 1
    5a8291e6 db2f 4bd6 8387 cbd624638414
    Rick and Morty's second season wasn't quite as phenomenal as it's first, but still the high point of cartoons for adults on television. The second season premier reminds us of everything we so missed, with a mind boggling A-plot that builds on a previous plot from last years season while incorporating escalating split screen, with a B-plot just as gonzo funny and emotionally grounded. What an episode.
  9. Last F*ckable Day - Inside Amy Schumer, Season 3 Episode 1
    Cb508474 00f2 492b 90c9 5e734361660d
    No bad sketch! Milk Milk Lemonade may be the funniest thing I saw all year!
  10. Knockoffs - Broad City, Season 2 Episode 3
    F6cce384 da41 41cd 9ea2 e730cfdffe13
    Broad City is a show so genius that I often normalize it's genius and forget about it. But I can honestly say that this episode has one of my favorite scenes I've ever seen on TV. Watch it.
  11. The Hand that Feeds - Big Time in Hollywood, Fl, Season 1 Episode 9
    E590e416 0734 4bdc b06d 041053927e19
    I can once again say one of the best things I've ever seen on television is in this episode. Never to be outdone.
