    People Are Sharing The Episode With Which Their Favourite TV Show Peaked, And It’s Pretty Interesting

    I've now got a lot of TV to watch!

    Recently we asked you, the good people of the BuzzFeed Community, which episode of your favourite TV show would you make someone watch if you wanted to recommend it to them?

    LifeStyle/Network 10

    You certainly didn't disappoint with your answers! Here are some of the best ones:

    1. "The Box" – Brooklyn Nine-Nine – S5, E14

    Image shows Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta leaning over a table in a police interview room as he faces off with a suspect with Captain Holt in the background
    Fox/Universal/John P. Fleenor

    "It's so brilliant the way Jake spends all of the episode trying to get the suspect to confess, and he finally cracks it at the end with the help of the amazing Captain Holt. This episode is so different compared to the rest of the show, and I love every second of it!"

    2. "The Winds of Winter" – Game of Thrones – S6, E10

    Image shows a castle exploding with bright green gas
    HBO

    "This is the one episode I tell people to watch! There's a lot of tragedy, but it's so well done – I rewatch it probably at least once a month. The sequence in which we hear 'Light of the Seven' playing as tension builds in the Great Sept –  meanwhile Cersei is waiting for her plan to unfold in the Red Keep – is flawless!"

    "The lack of music, the absolutely incredible performances from all of the actors, plus the sound of me sobbing throughout the whole thing makes for an incredible episode."

    Mark Bourdillon/BBC

    "It's the peak of the whole show! Our heroes start the episode on the back foot, and then slowly twist it around to win the day. Add in the most badass street chase, which proves once and for all that Kate and Steve's traditional gender roles are so completely not what you expect."

    Steve Carrell is on his knees performing CPR on an unseen patient dummy while a woman in purple observes him in a still from The Office
    NBC

    "It starts strong with the fake fire opening, and then gets progressively more funny with the CPR training and the roast of Michael. When I watch it, I like to think about how much fun the actors must have had filming it."

    12. "Changing Channels" – Supernatural – S5, E8

    Jack Rowand/The CW/Warner Bros.

    "It has great humour and still contains all things supernatural. It also doesn’t spoil any plot, and you could definitely watch it without much context."

    13. Fleabag – S2, E3

    Luke Varley/BBC

    "It's gotta be the episode when Hot Priest breaks the fourth wall. I got so startled when he turned around, and it made me realise how intimate a connection we had made with Fleabag. It was just pure genius and will stay with me for a long time."

    17. "The Fight" – Parks and Recreation – S3, E13

    Amy Poehler as Leslie holds a drink and looks inebriated in a still from Parks and Rec
    NBC

    "It's hilarious from the very first moment in the cold open when Ron asks who broke the coffee machine and they end up accusing each other. The best part is when they are all drunk on Snakejuice – Ron is dancing, April is speaking Spanish, and Ben and Tom are drunkenly rambling. Pure comedy gold honestly."

    — courtnie13

    "Absolutely genius and hilarious! It also includes the introduction of Janet Snakehole and Burt Macklin."

    "It is the final episode, but it showcases how far Beth has come since the start of the series. The music, the cinematography, the costuming – everything works together! You don't need to understand chess to watch this show because it's beautiful and heartbreaking and wonderful to all."

    "It has the normal drama and humour of Glee, along with some of the best songs and standout emotional scenes. It just has a great balance of being funny and heartwarming, whilst giving the OGs a great send off."

    20. "Chapter X" – Dear White People – S1, E10

    Adam Rose/Netflix

    "The first season is so brilliant, and the final episode with the protest at the town hall is so full of tension and drama. Lionel and Troy both get moments to shine, and Coco and Sam actually learn from each other. It's just great TV!"

    "There were so many good episodes of Lost (and some bad ones too), but I always return to "The Constant" as the perfect episode. The acting, as well as a mixture of classic weird and heartwarming moments, it's just awesome!"

    "I love it when Judy Geller finally says, 'that’s a lot of information to get in 30 seconds. That scene is so brilliant; the entire episode is super funny!"
