Greatest Television Episodes of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Ozymandias (Breaking Bad)

Jesus christ what is this list?
The Simpsons?
The Fairly Oddparents?
Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends?
I don't have problem with at least one episode from all those shows in the top but jesus... THE TOP 10? Where the heck is The Sopranos? Or The Wire? Or True Detective? Or Game of Thrones? Or even The Walking Dead? Do people know that cartoons aren't the only things in television? What's next? Steven Universe being better than Breaking Bad? Screw that, we aren't children anymore, create a list of cartoon episodes for that - Pato_cargo

Truly breathtaking in every possible sense. All aspects of this masterpiece is handled beautifully and smoothly. A gut-wrenching episode that got all the emotions flowing. I love Breaking Bad deeply! - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

2 Chocolate With Nuts (SpongeBob SquarePants)
3 Band Geeks (SpongeBob SquarePants)

I just noticed this says Bank Geeks instead of Band Geeks. - RalphBob

Not that good of an episode.

A masterpiece of ending.

25 Hardhome (Game of Thrones)

I loved the rains of castamere but this one and the battle of the bastards deserve the top spot (along with Ozymandias)

26 Battle of the Bastards (Game of Thrones)

One of the funniest episodes I've ever seen.

31 Silence in the Library (Doctor Who)
32 Son of Nergal (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy)
33 Blood Moon Rising (Hell on Wheels)
34 Days Gone Bye (The Walking Dead)

Yes! The one that paved the way for the amazing T.V. series. One of the best moments of the show.

35 Blink (Doctor Who)

Blink is my favorite Doctor Who episode followed closely by The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances. This episode was so intense and well made.

One of the most epic things I've seen on a T.V. show.
