What’s the Best Television Episode of All Time? People Spoke Up.

If I had to pick one TV episode that I think was my favorite, I’d say it’s the final episode of that brilliant TV show The Wonder Years all the way back in 1993.

Man, talk about a tearjerker!

But that’s just my opinion!

Check out what AskReddit users think is the best TV episode of all time.

Classic show.

“The Twilight Zone episode Monsters are Due on Maple Street.

The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices… to be found only in the minds of men.

For the record, prejudices can k**l… and suspicion can destroy… and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own—for the children and the children yet unborn.

And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to the Twilight Zone.”

Great show.

“Chernobyl- Vichnaya Pamyat.

“… they mistakenly sent the one good man. For God’s sakes Boris, you were the one who mattered the most.”

Not the best line of that episode, but definitely in the top.”

A wild ride.

“”Who Goes There” episode of True Detective is a serious adrenaline ride.

Great episode from a fantastic show.”

Sounds cool.

“Dr. Who: Midnight.

One of the most terrifying episodes I’ve ever experienced, and we never even saw the monster.

Just the way it inspired people to turn on each other… so horrifying.”


“Band of Brothers – Why We Fight.

I don’t think there was a bad episode in the whole show, but that one… it just rips your heart out.”

A tearjerker.

“Futurama “Luck of the Fryish.”

Makes me cry every time.

“Here lies Phillip Jay Fry. Named for his uncle, to carry on his spirit.””


“The last episode of Six Feet Under.

I get choked up every time I watch Peter Krause set off the absolutely astonishing final sequence by whispering to Lauren Ambrose “You can’t take a picture of this, it’s already gone.”

Just perfect.”

Stands on its own.

“”The Bent-Neck Lady” episode 5 of The Haunting of Hill House.

Can be viewed as a standalone horror film without watching the series.”


“The final episode of The Good Place is remarkable.

I can’t even think about it with all the feelings coming up.

The whole show is amazing and should be watched by everyone.”


“Mr Robot S4E07 – Proxy Authentication Required.

Tiny set, minimal number of characters, structured like a stage play and one of the most emotionally intense things I’ve ever watched.”

A big one.

“M*A*S*H, “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen.”

Man, I can count on the fingers of one hand all of the Very Special Episodes of any comedy series that aren’t trash, but this one, right here, the series finale, will suck the air right out of your lungs at least twice and every shock in it is entirely earned.”

Top of their game.

“Parks and Rec “The Comeback Kid”.

D**n near every line is a joke that hits and ALL characters are not only at the top of their game, but have a chance to shine. Plus, it birthed maybe the greatest outtake of all time.

Takes place in a point where the show was in full stride. It’s the episode I recommend to get people into the show.”

Now it’s your turn!
