    Yeah have to say BoJack's Fish Out Of Water but also That's Too Much, Man. That show in general just hits me hard every year.

    I only watched one show this year so my answer is limited to Episode 9 of Game of Thrones and Episode 10 of Game of Thrones.

    Game of thrones-Battle of the bastards. One of the most gripping and satisfying hours of television I've ever seen

    Battle of the Basterds
    Fish Out Of Water
    Every ep of this last season of Rectify

    The You're The Worst episode with Edgar for sure.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    I'm still baffled that I haven't hit a single Bojack Horseman that has any inkling of how apparently amazing it becomes, but I'll press on eventually.

    You're about 1-2 episodes away from the turning point. Then season 2 begins at an even higher level and season 3 is damn near perfect.

    You are so close!!

    God damn I finally got around to watching the first episode of Horace and Pete since it's on Hulu now. That was so devastating and just fascinating to watch. So yeah i guess toss the 2 BoJack episodes I mentioned earlier, San Junipero, whichever was the best episode of Silicone Valley this year, and that Horace and Pete episode on a list and there's my top 5. Subject to change as I continue watching Horace and Pete

    Wish Horace and Pete was on Netflix.

    New Girl's "Wedding Eve" and "Landing Gear" may not be critical darling episodes, but they were such a perfect culmination of the entire season/characters up to that point I feel like I need to mention them.
