AMF's Top TV Episodes of All Time

Post by billieeilishstyle »

I decided to finally host this poll, which is for what AcclaimedMusic users will consider the best episodes of TV ever aired, and the rules are


1) Please include a minimum of 10 episodes on your ballot. Any lists with fewer than 10 items will not be counted towards the total. There will be no maximum number of episodes per voter, so every entry on your list will be counted.
2) Lists may be submitted via PM or to my email but it'll encourage more discussion if you post in this thread instead/as well.

A deadline will be set in the future.

This is rather imperfect since I've only seen so many shows, though I've been allotting myself more time for them since last year.

Also I've watched far more animated shows than live action.

I wonder if there's anyone that feels similarly that "Sozin's Comet" is one of the weaker episodes of the show? Part 3 is great, but everything else is supremely mid. It looks nice, that's about it, but Ozai is not a great villain. (imo even Zhao is clearly a superior character)

Anyway, as it is one of my favorite shows, I'm looking forward to the live adaptation coming in a couple months, which looks decent, so without having seen it, I will pre-emptively recommend it as an entry point to people who haven't see the original. Hopefully I don't eat my words.
