So this would be any stretch of episodes 3 episodes or longer - something that just had you at the edge of your seat the entire time, or it's some of your favorite TV episodes all in a row

For me, I would say Person of Interest has the most that I can think of:

Season 3, episodes 8 through 10 - the >!end of the HR saga!<

Season 3, episodes 16 through 23 - the episodes that >!lead to and include Samaritan going live!<

Season 4, episodes 9 through 11 - it's the trilogy of episodes that ends with >!If-Then-Else!<

Season 5, episodes 10 through 13 - it's the end of the series. Episode 10 goes into this even if it is just for this monologue

The last three episodes of Breaking Bad Season 4: Crawl Space, End Times, and Face Off. It’s a perfect trilogy full of the best climaxes in the show’s entire run.

Close second I’d say Half Measure, Full Measure, and Box Cutter.

PM_ME_CAKE t1_ixzdum2 wrote

Everything from Self Control to the finale of S4 is gold, what a brilliantly crazy stretch of episodes. In general the show is good as far as shows go (and then in the upper tiers for superhero shows), but I reckon those episodes can actually make punts against even the non-superhero shows in terms of quality.


Major_Pomegranate t1_ixzjyr7 wrote

That show had such a weird situation with Marvel tying their hands. Sure, you can run half a season and introduce everyone to your characters, just don't actually start the story until our latest movie is out. By all rights it should have crippled the show, and a lot of people did write it off based on those campy first episodes.

But damn did they have a plan and a means to kick things off with a bang as soon as they had the opportunity. As soon as Bill Paxton appears, things go uphill fast. The fact that Ward went from everyone's most hated/boring character to one of the most popular in the series just shows how well they had things planned out

Came here to honestly say the entirety of season 4 lmao. I think it’s as close to perfect tv as I’ve seen, it’s just a cut above even the other 3 seasons (although 2 and are just fantastic as well). The way it looks, the pacing, the character work, and the revelations all just come together to make something so special.


LordXenu45 t1_ixt9439 wrote

As far as just straight dramas go if The Wire didn't exist Mr. Robot would be my personal pick for TV GOAT. I agree with the general consensus season 2 is a bit too slow, but the pay off is worth it and I don't have a bad thing to say about 1, 3, or 4.

To think about the way that show starts and then where it ultimately leads... just a remarkable journey. It's batshit, it's thought provoking, and it's wrapped up in such a perfect way that I really do think it deserves to be up there with the best. Crazy it aired on USA Network lol

I'm watching The Sopranos rn and just finding it a slog. I'm on season 4 (ewrly, like ep 2 or 3 so far) so I feel like atp I may as well finish it, but according to most people it was supposed to be my favorite show by season 3, so idk if I will. Does it get significantly better or is it mostly the same thing? I just hate how it's so episodic and feels like not much significant happens episode by episode. I haven't really cared too much about the characters that died so far apart from >!Pussy, but he's also a serial cheater and rat so it wasn't that sad a death for me!<


bleachtemple t1_ixu5ytz wrote

sopranos doesn't have much of a plot. tbh the plot doesn't kick in in terms of action / final arcs until like the last 10 episodes. if you're looking for plot development you're not gonna enjoy it. it's purely a character study. everything that happens that doesn't seem 'significant' is usually massively important for character development/exploration. I think it's the best TV show of all time personally but if you're going in expecting breaking bad type plot twists/tension you're going to be very dissapointed. I like to see it as sitting down and watching a group of people's daily lives, and taking away from it whatever you feel. it's also incredibly funny, nearly every episode has laugh out loud moments for me. I think a lot of people take it too seriously when the majority of it is farce/absolute nonsense

it's amazing, but yeah if you're expecting action and a typical plot you're going to find it a slog


Artistic-Toe-8803 t1_ixu74kz wrote

well it's precisely the fact that the vast majority of people consider it the greatest show of all time, that made me wanna watch it. But atp I have no clue how it can match shows like The Wire, for instance. With BB I can at least understand how people say The Sopranos is better bc Walter White is inspired by Tony Soprano in a lot of ways.


bleachtemple t1_ixu778l wrote

the sopranos is definitely as good as the wire, it's just got more experimental storytelling that you don't seem to enjoy. and that's fine


bobosuda t1_ixtzb7h wrote

You can just stop watching it. Like all shows it's not for everyone. I personally love it and so do a lot of people obviously, but if you're on s4 and you still haven't found anything you like about the show it's easier to just drop it.

yesssssss such a good run of episodes

season 3 finale is probably the best episode of lost


phrenicbeat86 t1_ixuyvte wrote

That season gets some flack especially for "Stranger in a Strange Land" - this is where producers negotiated an end date because they knew that type of storytelling wouldn't last.

But I would say the entire second half of that season is so strong. And obviously that finale cliffhanger is one of the greatest.


Mattyzooks t1_ixvbk7q wrote

If it wasn't for Stranger (and Expose, which i like but is pretty divisive), I'd say Not In Portland through the finale is one of the most impressive run of episodes of any show ever.


phrenicbeat86 t1_ixvgpjw wrote

I actually loved Expose. I was indifferent to Nikki/Paulo - I think casual fans were confused by them. Sure the episode wasn't a mythology episode but I thought it was written and executed well and was a lot of fun.

Completey agree about NIP to the end. Even though you will hear mixed responses about what the best season was - that run was so good.


Mattyzooks t1_ixxp5bd wrote

Season 3 gets shit for that 6 episode pod that dropped in the fall before it came for am uninterrupted run in the winter. On a week to week basis, the locked in cages storyline didn't go well. But once that season started going, they just started resolving a lot of the backstop mysteries and basically gave the audience a ton of payoffs and set up new interesting plots. 3 is my favorite season, imo.

It’s interesting you say that. I like season one of Community but IMO it’s a little generic while they’re still figuring the characters, its niche, and trying to court a mainstream audience. I’d say the strongest stretch starts a few episodes into season two and runs through the Glee parody episode. I never thought they were able to maintain the momentum they had before their first hiatus after that episode.

Glad someone else mentioned Agents of Shield. Especially season 4. Will mention few anime shows here.

How about entirity of Arcane? That show was phenomenal from beginning to end, and each 'arcs' elevated the previous episodes. Haven't experienced a show that resonated with me for a while.

Hunter X Hunter Chimera Ant: The Previous arcs like Yorknew Arc was amazing, but going through this arc felt like reading an ancient epic. Some of the elements are either make-or-break for people like the heavy reliance of narrator, the amount of chaos happening though

Gintama Shogun Assassination Arc: The entire show is slapstick comedy but has some really serious story arcs throughout the show. This being one of that I personally liked the most.


L0b0t0my t1_ixupjxh wrote

Definitely Attack on Titan,

"Perfect Game", "Hero", and "Midnight Sun", is some of, if not THE, best television out there, period. From drama, to action, to music, to emotional and dramatic weight; the stakes just feel so fucking real, and being able to sell those stakes is I think it's biggest strength.

And this part was only recent surpassed 2 seasons later by "Two Brothers", "Memories of the Future", and "From you, 2000 years ago". Some have claimed this to be the absolute pinnacle of what fiction is capable of when it first released in the book. Two brothers did what the previous sequence did dialed up to 100, memories of the future is the ultimate mic drop and flex as a writer that recontextualizes the entire series, and the last brings the entire series full circle; an absolute masterpiece..... and it only happens half way through the season.

Breaking Bad: S5E8 - S5E16;

I've had a weird journey with this show, I initiallt watched the first season when it originally came iut on Netflix like 10+ years ago, and then didn't watch any of the rest. I only went bsck and watched the entire thing fron scratch within the past couple years, which I think heavily hampered my enjoyment. The novelty of the plot premise was lost on me this time, since I had already seen the first season years ago and have seen this show memed to death in the years since. I liked every season better than the last, and felt each season was capped off incredibly well, but never felt as though it was the greatest show I'd ever seen or anything - until I actually finished it.

I loved the final few eps of S4, particularly the finale, but the early parts of S5 just felt really slow to me. That was another thing that I always found tough, despite the plot moving at a relatively brisk pace, the actual episodes themselves can be incredibly slow and methodical, like Better Call Saul (except Better Call Saul doesn't really have a plot until the later seasons, the early ones meticulously build up and provide more background for characters until things start to pick up later on). But after the halfway point, I blew through the rest of S5, and it was just amazing. Looking back, it probably is the greatest season of TV ever made, and probably cements the rest of the show as the greatest, since others in contenrion like The Wire don't close out nearly as perfectly, >!BB ends exactly where it was meant to from the first ep, but the journey there was insane !<

Dark: S1E1 - S3E8;

I know a lot of people hate the 3rd season, but I didn't see anything wrong with it personally, loved the ending. This is my favorite show ever by far, and while it has a cult following for sure, it still needs more viewers. I'n more a fan of plot driven than character driven shows tbf, but this show does its massive cast of characters super well too. The cinematography and tone are great, and the plot is just absurd. This show has by far the most WTF moments of any show I've seen. It is convoluted for sure, but if you strain your brain a bit, you can figure it out. Watch Dark if you haven't.

The Leftovers: S2E8 - S2E10;

This show has the most annoying cult fanbase I've ever seen anywhere for anything that flies remotely under the radar. I had previously ttied watching Mr. Robot after seeing tons of praise for it by the same kinds of people that love The Leftovers, and found it insanely cringe from early on. So I went into The Leftovers thinking it'd just be another cringy, pretentious Reddit show that I'd understand why nobody I'll ever meet irl in my entire life will have ever even heard of.

However, I was surprised to find, that it actually deserves its praise. Its fans are annoying af for sure, but I get them, to an extent. They're screaming at the sky desperately trying to tell the whole world to notice something it never will, but needs to. And it certainly does need to. It seriously annoys me how the show never answers most of your questions, but then again the real world does the same thing. We will never have the answers to the vast, vast majority of questions we have, especially the biggest ones, and the beauty in life is how we cope with that knowledge. That's the actual point of The Leftovers, as any diehard fan of the show will tell you.

I had heard people say that the first season sucks and it only picks up during seasons 2 and 3, but as a former hatewatcher of the show, I will say that's some certified grade A prime Wagyu bullshit. Season 1, particularly the final few eps, is just beautifully written and executed, and the show as a whole is like a flawless tapestry. The final 3 eps of S2, particularly E8 and E10, have to be some of the best TV ever created, and the show's ending is great too.

Star Trek Deep Space 9's Final Chapter. The last 9 episodes from 7x17 to 7x26 were even marketed in commercials as "The Final Chapter" and formed one, long, nine episode storyarc that wrapped up almost all the show's plot threads.

Reaching way back here, but the last three episodes of season 5 of Knots Landing were really intense. Those three episodes were added late in the season after the show’s ratings shot up and the network asked for more. The season cliffhanger had already been planned, so the writers amped up the action even more, with that cliffhanger followed by a bigger one three episodes later.

There is a moment when Jack finds Nickie, and Nickie turns around and the actor his this amazing haunted look on his face.

They also showed something I remember as a kid and never saw dramatized since then which was how the draft lottery numbers were televised to the nation. The show got that just right.
