What's One Moment When A TV Show Went From Good To "Masterpiece"?

Perfect shows don't start perfect. They become perfect.

The best TV shows start good and only get better. And there's usually a single moment you can point to where you said, "Oh, this show isn't just good. It's a masterpiece."

Like, maybe the moment when Eleanor realized she was in The Bad Place was the moment you fell in love with The Good Place.

Or perhaps you think the scene where Ben and Chris were introduced into the cast of Parks and Recreation was exactly the moment that the show became perfect.

Personally, the moment in "The Blue Spirit" in Avatar: The Last Airbender where Aang tells Zuko that they could have been friends in another life was when I realized this was not going to be an ordinary kids show.

Aang telling Zuko about his Fire Nation friend Kuzon and then asking, "If we knew each other back then, do you think we could have been friends, too?" to which Zuko responds by firebending at him
