“She’s alive” Severance.


conker1264 t1_j261kxh wrote

Seriously one of the best season finales ever


Numbskull14 t1_j26c9fu wrote

Totally agree. I think it was the best season finale since Ned stark’s head getting cut off, in my opinion. Such a great season of television.

Edit: I forgot Ned Stark wasn’t the finale. I saw that however many years ago when it came out. The point is more that Severance is the best season of TV since GOT S1, imo, excluding maybe True detective S1 but that was a stand-alone that I look at differently.


KingMilk55 t1_j26wep1 wrote

Ned Starks beheading wasnt even in the finale, but the S1 GoT finale still had some amazing moments (the King in the North chant being the best imo)


WildcatKid t1_j29ilyg wrote

Maybe they mixed up that both are in episode 9 haha


mendog2112 t1_j286hso wrote

So severance is worth checking out?


Ftimis t1_j28v5ud wrote

The only new show in recent memory where the first season was more than enough for me to know that it's gonna be one of my absolute favorite series by the time it wraps up. Amazing show.


Numbskull14 t1_j28lhv5 wrote

Yes most definitely. Worth paying for Apple TV plus for a month just to watch that


splitcroof92 t1_j2acvat wrote

tbh, I'd wait till season 2 is gonna come out soon.

it's incredibly good but damn the wait is long.

TellThemIHateThem t1_j278in7 wrote

Definitely this. Best show of 2022 by far for me, followed by The Bear and The Rehearsal.

AMC stuffed Rhea in the best supporting actress category again and she’s going to get fucked over just like every other award season and people will be pissed. Lead Actress has weaker competition this year. She could have dominated.

Problem is >!she’s basically absent for the second half of the season until the second to last episode!<


garrymad-gm t1_j2781kr wrote

As far as the submissions go, the second half of the season counts from episodes 8-13, she was in 8,9,12 and 13, so 4 of the 6 episodes


shartnado3 t1_j25k1h9 wrote

Rhea Seehorn absolutely killed it this season (The whole show to be fair). That show was just brilliant

Yes, apparently it was an airport shuttle.

Stranger Things - Eddie's performance in the Upside Down

Severance - "She's Alive"

Andor - "I can't swim." and "I burned my soul for a sunrise I'll never see."

Better Call Saul - Like... all of it?

House of Dragon - Vhagar eating

The Bear - you know the episode


ThisIsCreation t1_j25sb48 wrote

My favourite moment was Lalo Salamanca entering Jimmy's apartment in Better Call Saul. The way it's framed with the candle & Kim & Jimmy's reaction, it's like a scene from a horror.


Freakazoidberg t1_j28xyd3 wrote

Great suggestion!

Yeah that scene was one of the most memorable scenes for me in the show. And it was well foreshadowed but we still don't see it coming because the whole time I was wrapped up in Howard dressing down Kim and Jimmy and then enters Lalo like the death reckoning wiping out the candle light.


GLP0307 t1_j25udja wrote

Maarva's speech in Andor's Rix Road made me put my feet down and sit forward, literally on the edge of my seat. I had goosebumps.


danielisbored t1_j28pojl wrote

Best Star Wars speech ever. I was watching with headphones and wasn't really aware I was doing it, but apparently, I audibly cheered, which confused the hell out of my wife.

I was secretly rooting a little bit for Sam, the Steve Martin lookalike, in the ToC, but at the end of the day our all-time favorite Jeopardy contestant was and will always be Amy Schneider.

That seems pretty controversial considering the love/hate with the different hosts. But I agree with you overall.


daft_neo t1_j25u44y wrote

The final moments of "The Bear" finale - the way that Radiohead swells at the perfect moment as he sees his brother, chokes me up just thinking about it.


Schpaedzles t1_j25nbjo wrote

(Spoilers HotD and Better Call Saul)

  • Vhagar/Aemond and Arrax/Lucerys scenes

  • King Viserys entering the throne room

  • Alicent asking Criston to bring her Lucerys' eye

  • Howard and Lalo scene

  • basically all the Nacho Varga scenes


19Jamie93 OP t1_j25ocag wrote

Viserys entering the throne room was as good as anything that happened in the main series. Incredible


FluffyMoomin t1_j275u8n wrote

The peacemaker opening the first time I saw it. The entire series was a welcome surprise.


jellyrat24 t1_j26jguj wrote

First thing that comes to mind is Olivia Cooke’s performance as Alicent Hightower: “Where is duty? Where is sacrifice? It’s trampled under your pretty foot again.”

It has become my big time hyperfixation of 2022! I just love it so much.


WatchBat t1_j26u5js wrote

>What was your favourite/best television moment of 2022?

I have several, so in no particular order

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi:- Vader's scene in the village in ep3, and the broken mask in ep6

  • Stranger Things:- The entire "Dear Billy" episode, but especially Max's confrontation and escape from Vecna

  • Andor:- the Eye in ep6, Keno's speech in ep10 and "I can't swim"

  • In Rings of Power:- Seeing Khazad-dûm in all its glory

  • House of the Dragon:- the finale dragon chase, Alicent's green dress entrance in ep5, the aftermath of the children's fight in ep7

This one is an extra, the show was released last year but I watched it this year. Arcane:- all of it but especially ep6, the torch scene

Edit:- I wanna add The Sandman:- 24/7 and A Dream of a Thousand Cats


pardybill t1_j282h6x wrote

Arcane deserves a bit of honorable mention.

And I agree with Rings and Kenobi, despite the Reddit hate for both.

For All Mankind I think is one that’s underrated here


theredditoro t1_j2954qb wrote

Rings was stunning to look at. And the score in that scene was awesome.


WatchBat t1_j297egg wrote

Definitely. Númenor, the elven kingdoms, the Trees!! Say what you will about the writing but the visuals were breathtaking.

I only mentioned Khazad-dûm because it was my favorite


Intelligent-Age2786 t1_j265obo wrote

Best scene: Eddie Munsons Master of Puppets solo/Viserys entering the throne room

Best male performer: Paddy Considine

Best female performer: Sadie Sink/Rhea Seehorn. HM: Emma Darcy

Best Finale: BCS/Stranger Things

Biggest surprise: The Bear

Best Comedy: Barry

Best Drama: House of the Dragon

Best Thriller: Stranger Things


19Jamie93 OP t1_j26lnya wrote

Hope Paddy Considine is awarded for his performance, absolute class.


Roook36 t1_j25jyjo wrote

Episode 4 of Stranger Things season 4 for sure.

Also the first 15 minutes of The Boys season 3

The Book of Boba Fett episode 5

End of Peacemaker finale, or the whole finale

Wednesday dance

And if I could pick one scene or episode of Severance I would but it's tough. Maybe end of episode 4

Stranger things ep 4 piano outro to the credits was my favourite piece of music in tv this year

Daryl saying “We aint the walking dead” gave me some sweet fan service


Just_For_ShiGrins t1_j25rbxf wrote

Wait, did both of these things actually happen? Guess I will have to watch the ending of the show after all.


19Jamie93 OP t1_j25vxtr wrote

Worth a watch for sure. Been watching that show since i was in school


Forsaken_Tip_596 t1_j267ml4 wrote

The series finale itself is a good series finale closing the main show of the Walking Dead and leaving the door open for future sequels. While Season 8 was by far the worst season in its run, I have really enjoyed seasons 9-11. Angela Kang did a great job at bringing the show back. I’ve been watching the series since Season 2 live. Even though the main series has ended I’m definitely looking forward to Season 8 of Fear The Walking Dead (the return of Madison Clarke), and the upcoming spin-offs:

  1. The Walking Dead: Dead City (Maggie/Negan spin-off set in NYC)

  2. The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon (Working Title) (Daryl Spin-off set in Paris, France following the post-credit scene of TWD: World Beyond)

  3. The Walking Dead: Summit (Working Title) (Rick and Michonne Spin-off set in Philadelphia/New Jersey, dealing with the CRM).

Edit: Yes, both of those things DID actually happen in the Series Finale


Loganp812 t1_j28ya83 wrote

Even though it's kind of a bastardized adaptation of that speech compared to the context in the comics.

It's a big full-circle moment for Rick in the comics which, granted, couldn't really work in the show given that he was absent for nearly three full seasons.

Still, I'm glad they did it, and I think the show did the best it could with the final season and the ending given that a certain, specific death in Season 8 basically meant that the show couldn't do the comic's ending anyway.


Iloveyellowcats t1_j261z5o wrote

In no particular order:

- Father Brice's exit on Chucky (the whole episode was so good!!)

- Jackie's demise on Yellowjackets

- Literally everything about Maryanne on Survivor 42, particularly her slam dunk FTC performance

- Cristin Milioti's performance on The Resort

- Mr. Brightside playing in the finale of Tell Me Lies (it was *chef's kiss*)

- Jesse and Cody's handshake on Survivor 43

- Kody saying he got a KNIFE IN THE KIDNEYS on Sister Wives

- The final scene in the first episode of George & Tammy

- Funeral by Phoebe Bridgers playing on The Summer I Turned Pretty

- Amanda Seyfried and Naveen Andrews' chemistry on The Dropout

- All the scenes where Dana flashes back to the present in Kindred, just absolutely visceral to watch

- The Story Samurai episode of Abbott Elementary

- Jessica Alba's performance in Candy, chilling


Holysaltwater t1_j2acfnb wrote

God I was waiting for someone to mention Chucky, and that episode really was the best of the season.

All of Severance, the disco dance scene in the office was a particular favorite


Calm-Hovercraft9858 t1_j25uls0 wrote

The climax of Stranger Things 4. The epic version of Running Up That Hill very much fit well.


lifth3avy84 t1_j269mve wrote

Wasn’t it just the 1985 version of the song? It wasn’t a remix I don’t think.


Maninhartsford t1_j26aia4 wrote

There's definitely some added orchestral stuff when she's running from Vecna but it's subtle.


lifth3avy84 t1_j26axee wrote

Yeah, I feel like the show layered an orchestral version OVER the 85 original. Would that be a remix, if it’s two version played simultaneously?

Will have to be pretty great if it can compete with Andor!

Severance - S1E9 (finale) “The We We Are”

Alice in Borderland - S2E8 (finale)

Andor - S1E10 “One Way Out”

Mythic Quest - S3E7 “Sarian”

Rings of Power - S1E6 “Udûn”

The Owl House - S2E16 “Hollow Mind”

Stranger Things - S4E7 “The Massacre at Hawkins Lab”


splitcroof92 t1_j2ae5ti wrote

I personally couldn't stand Alice in borderland finale. In my opinion the worst episode of the show by far

without going into spoilers, the result and the idea behind what happens in the end is beautiful but holy fucking shit did we not need those 60 thousand monologues and fakeouts. they could and should have cut about 25-35 minutes of that episode.


stevensi1018 t1_j25pp1c wrote

3 episodes that I really enjoyed this year and not talked about enough

  • Last episode of The Devil’s Hour. I loved the twist

  • Episode 7 of Fleishman Is in Trouble (The one with Claire Danes as the main character)

  • Final episode of Alice in Borderland. Absolutely loved it


Simply_Epic t1_j285qjy wrote

I just finished Alice in Borderland and that final episode took me on a trip. Made me feel so many different things. Definitely up there on my list of favorite finales


stevensi1018 t1_j28u1fh wrote

Yeah, even if I love the series, I hope that it’s the definitive ending because it was perfect IMO. I don’t see how it could continue and have a better ending than that later on


splitcroof92 t1_j2aefid wrote

it took me on a trip to a different room to make coffee is what it did to me. I'm actually quite surprised people here seem positive about it. it was just monologue after monologue, death fake out after fakeout. Just endless.

Andor - Escaping through The Eye.

Peacemaker - Pretty much the whole show, really.

Better Call Saul - Final sequence/final cigarette

Stranger Things - Eddie Munson + the use of Kate Bush

White Lotus - costuming, writing, so many performances

Physical - Rose Byrne & Murray Bartlett honesty dance sequence in ep "Don't You Run & Hide"

gordy06 t1_j29qess wrote

Some great consensus around Andor, Better Call Saul, The Bear, Severance, HotD and others in here. Will throw in some others I didn’t see as much:

Afterparty - the entire series. It’s a lot of fun.

Atlanta - great finale season and the episode about the Goofy Movie is S tier.

Barry - the series doesn’t miss but the motorcycle chase in 710N was chefs kiss.

Black Bird - solid mini series and Paul Walter Hauser’s performance is award worthy.

For All Mankind - I know this season didn’t get quite as much love as the previous two but still such a thrill for me and the end….

Kevin Can F Himself - underwatched show with a unique premise. Glad it got a second season to close out and that scene in the finale is worth it all.


sillystevedore t1_j29zofr wrote

Here’s a bunch:

  • At the end of Reservation Dogs, when Daniel shows up, for a fleeting moment, in the group hug on the beach.
  • The moment in Andor when Bix, who’s still locked up post-interrogation, is listening to Maarva’s speech and trying to lean out the window to feel the slightest bit closer to her.
  • Jimmy and Kim sharing one last cigarette in the most noir lighting you’ve ever seen in Better Call Saul.
  • The riveting Harper/Jesse/Rishi negotiation in which Rishi ends up getting screwed over, in Industry.
  • Jackson Lamb’s anti-inspiring speech in the park in the first season of Slow Horses.

sillystevedore t1_j2a13ar wrote

Could also add like nine other Andor moments. Dedra Meero undressing her ISB colleague and taking over his sector in the episode “Announcement.” Luthen’s haunting speech. Mon Mothma’s capping off her approach to a fellow rebel-sympathizer colleague with the “perhaps my politics are too strong for your taste” line. I can keep going!
