    The "Pilot" (1st) episode of Freaks and Geeks.

    When it was over I felt like I had watched one of the BEST movies EVER made about high school. EVERYTHING about it is perfection.

    Now that's a classic. For me in Father Ted it's probably the one where the priests get stuck in the lingerie department and have to pull together to get themselves out of there :) So much to choose from in that show though. Now just thought of another, My Lovely Horse!

    I can't recall episode names or half of what I've loved on TV, so perhaps I'll be a traditional Brit and say Only Fools And Horses, it's a toss up between leaning on the counter, the chandelier, the jolly boys outing or Uncle Albert speaking german to the lost young lady - or for that matter anything with Uncle Albert.

    There are about 5 episodes from this series that would make my all time favourites and every show had at least one equally profound moment for me. I had such an emotional connection to the show.

    This is hands down the weirdest piece of TV I have seen. Just imagine, you've been watching seven episodes of a TV show that is already pretty strange and then David Lynch hits you with this! I've never seen so many TV show review websites start their review with WTF! Amazing, mesmerizing, transformative stuff. Lynch is a genius.

    Twin peaks for me. Not always consistent but when it was on, it was great and there was nothing like it.

    I have a few candidates that are hard to pick one over the other. Each had a somewhat profound effect on me the first time I saw it.

    TWILIGHT ZONE: "On Thursday We Leave For Home"
    THE OUTER LIMITS: "The Man Who Was Never Born"
    THE FUGITIVE: "The Ivy Maze"
    TIME TUNNEL: "Rendezvous With Yesterday"
    STAR TREK: "City On The Edge Of Forever"
    THE INVADERS: "Beachhead"
    THE PRISONER: "Arrival"
    M*A*S*H: "Dreams"

    These sort of fall into two categories, pilot episodes that introduced a series that's stayed with me all these years, and episodes of already favorites that amount to "mind blown" status.

    I asked my wife to marry me during the show where Marilyn went to Seattle (or was it Portland?), we watched it religiously when we were in college. Fast forward to 2008 when we were looking for baby names for our third child, a girl...we decided on Miranda. Named after Shelly and Holling's baby.

    What a great show -- one of Harlan Ellison's best.

    I forgot another of Harlan Ellison's works, hands-down the best episode ever of Star Trek: "City on the Edge of Forever."


    An SF-writer friend of mine says, "this is the kind of show that makes you cry: partly because it's so brilliant, and partly because you're jealous that you could never have written it." Even Gene Roddenberry -- who fought bitterly with Harlan over changes they made to the script -- admitted years later that it was the best episode they ever did.
