Mork & Mindy - Mork Meets Robin Williams

Quote:

Orson: I thought all stars were rich, live in mansions and drive big eggs.

Mork: I know, sir, that's the common misconception. But you see to get that you have to pay a very heavy price: you have responsibilities, anxieties, and to tell you the truth, sir, some of them can't take it.

Orson: I'm not buying it, Mork.

Mork: Why, sir?

Orson: It sounds to me like they have it made.

Mork: Well, most of them do sir, but some are victims of their own fame, very special and talented people: people like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe... Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Lenny Bruce, Freddie Prinze, and John Lennon.
Excellent episode, but that list could now include Robin Williams

AS FOR OTHER SHOWS

The Twilight Zone: TOS "Nightmare at 30000 Feet"; "It's A Good Life";

Law & Order "Divorce"; "Volunteers"; "Competence"; "Double Blind"; "Menace"; "Blood"; "Damaged"; "Nowhere Man"; with twenty years on air they have really had too many great episodes to count

Law & Order: Criminal Intent "The Saint"-the episode starring Stephen Colbert; "Gone"; "Homo Homini Lupis"; "Blink"

Breaking Bad "Ozymandias"; "Dead Freight" ; "Felina"; "Face Off"

LOST "Walkabout"

The last episode of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson was great too.

As for an episode of TV that I thought was going to great but ended up severely disappointing---the July 9 2001 episode of WWF Monday Night Raw where they had members of ECW re-unite in the ring and former ECW Paul Heyman left the announce table to enter the ring and announced the reformation of ECW. It was a great moment that they blew at the end of show by announcing the new ECW owner---Stephanie McMahon. Turning the whole storylime into an overblown McMahon family feud.

The Office - Employee Transfer

In this episode, Michael struggles with the fact that his girlfriend Holly is being transferred back to her old branch in Nashua, NH, after CFO David Wallace discovers their relationship. Meanwhile, Pam and Jim's two brothers play a prank on Jim, and Dwight irritates his romantic rival Andy by taking an interest in Andy's old school, Cornell University.

The only single episode of a series I have on my DVR is Deep Space Nine's Far Beyond the Stars. In it, Benjamin gets drawn into a vision where he is a science fiction writer in the 50s. The story is wonderful and wonderfully meta as the writer, Benny Russell, has a breakdown and starts writing a story about a deep space station. If you haven't seen it, check out the link. It's also very cool to see the other cast members as humans.

I thought the episode where Melfi is raped was excellent. Also, the follow-on scenes concerning that event were very well done.

As was agreed in the 2 and a Half Men thread, the best episode was "Old Flame With A New Wick." A very funny story line delivered perfectly!

This thread is perfect for something I remembered the other week, something I hadn't thought about in probably 30+ years.

I was never a regular viewer of "Cheers", but I watched it once in a while (I was in junior high when it started, finishing college when it ended) but I caught the last episode with Diane (Shelley Long's character) that guest starred Christopher Lloyd, and for a sit-com, it was actually a really powerful, emotional send off for one of the star characters.

Anyone else remember this?

Anyone know a way I could watch it again?

Cheers is available on Hulu, apparently. If you aren't a subscriber and don't wish to be one, you could always sign up for a free trial and then cancel. You could also try YouTube.

According to IMDb, the episodes with Christopher Lloyd are S02E21 and S02E22, "I'll Be Seeing You, parts 1 & 2." But those don't appear to be Diane's last episodes, so you may be conflating two memories.

That is very possible.

I remember that the polt was that Diane wanted a famous painter (Christopher Lloyd) to paint her portrait, but Sam was jealous and had some hack paint one instead, which led to a huge fight (as Lloyd's character had predicted) and the last scene was when Sam finally looked at the painting that caused Diane to leave him for good, his only word was "Wow..."

(it might not sound like much, but I remember thinking how understated yet powerful and even touching it was, especially for a show like Cheers)

It was at the end of the second season. When she came back at the beginning of the third, she had hooked up with Frasier, who was treating her after she'd had a breakdown.

"But whay are the kids crying..."


Rick: I feel sorry for you, you zeros! You nobodies! What's going to live on after you die? I'll tell you: nothing! That's what! [struggling to hang himself] Oh, this is pathetic!
[he gives up trying to hang himself, then sees a jar of pills and attempts to overdose]
Neil: [upon seeing Rick eating the pills] Vyv, Vyv, can you, like, actually kill yourself with laxative pills?
Vyvyan: I don't know Neil, but I'm going to stay and find out!
Neil: I think I'm going up to my room for a bit!
[Rick swallows pills in front of Neil as he leaves]
Rick: This house will become a shrine, and punks and skins and rastas will all gather round and hold their hands in sorrow for their fallen leader. And all the grown-ups will say, "But why are the kids crying?" And the kids will say, "Haven't you heard? Rick is dead! The People's Poet is dead!"
[Vyvyan crouches down to watch Rick's rear as he talks]
Rick: And then one particularly sensitive and articulate teenager will say, "Other kids, do you understand nothing? How can Rick be dead when we still have his poems?" And then another kid will say... [he then farts loudly and realises what he's been taking]

The Young Ones, 2.1, 'Bambi'

I could have added Episode 8 from the new season. A truly great cinematic experience and an all-time classic episode of TV. Even if you did not watch the rest of the new season, you should check that one out.

I still think it's one of the best. I'd add:

The Return of the Archons - an alien world that is truly alien

Mirror, Mirror - an alternative universe where the Enterprise is evil, even Mr. Spock

I know "Jurassic Bark" gets a lot of love, but personally my picks for Futurama are "The Sting" and "The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings".

That episode was a mind-blower.

I'd add Scrubs season 3 episode 14, My Screw Up, to the list. Where do you think we are?

Greatest is a tough one, especially given how so many shows these days are approaching filmic quality, but the one that has stuck with me more than any other is ST:TNG S6E14 "Tapestry". There is such a valuable lesson here -- one that I never really did learn.

If I had to choose one Breaking Bad Episode, it would be S2E12 "Phoenix". After that, Walter White was essentially irredeemable.

ETA: How could I forget? M*A*S*H: "Tuttle".

It looks like I was totally off base on that one.

Thanks for the Straight Dope.

There are only 2 other specific Cheers episodes that I can remember, both kind of serious for a Sit-Com, one was when Coach's daughter confronted her Dad, telling him that she was unhappy and thought she was ugly, and Coach told her she was beautiful, and that she looked just like her Mother (actually very poignant, I thought) and the other was when Sam, who was of course a recovering alcoholic, had the bottlecap for the last bottle of beer he ever drank, that he kept as a kind of talisman to him, reminding him of how much that alcohol had messed up his life, and then he somehow lost the cap, and was tempted to fall off the wagon, but he kept the faith, grabbed a random cap out of the garbage, and said, (to himself) "Oh, there it is..." and closed up the bar for the night, sobriety in tact.

You had to go there, didn't you?

Seriously, this is the perfect example of how to communicate difficult subject matter to kids. They hit it out of the park with this one.

On less profound notes, I'll add:

Columbo: "A Case of Immunity"
Columbo: "The Conspirators"
Blackadder: "Goodbyeee" (it is my sig line, after all)

It is difficult to single out one episode of The Prisoner. "The Chimes of Big Ben" was the first one I ever saw, so I'll go with that. And "Arrival".

aurora maire, thank you for reminding me of "Far Beyond the Stars". Excellent.

Also excellent!

I might add the two-parter from House, House's Head and Wilson's Heart, to the list, but the best episode has already been mentioned:

He had objected to the creep she planned to marry out of desperation. She then decided to end the engagement because she wanted a man as good as her father.

My favorite episode too, because of that scene. It was beautifully written and wonderfully acted.

Simply outstanding. So many great Scrubs episodes, but those two are among the best.

Before seeing either of these posts, if someone asked me for the best Scrubs episode I would have said Cox's brother (My Screw Up), but after remembering My Lunch I think that's the winner. Absolutely devastating.

Laughter usually needs company. That is one of the few episodes of tv I remember laughing historically at alone in an empty room. The beauty of that show is how the tone shifted from episode to episode.

Thought of another one. Futurama: "Hell is Other Robots," though there are a lot of great Futurama episodes.

Tony Sinclair, I saw it last weekend, and I think "The City on the Edge of Forever" is still a first-rate piece of work. It's a pity it didn't use the line that James Blish used in his adaptation: "Always remember, Jim, no other woman was really offered the universe for love."

My picks would be the episodes of Frasier where David Hyde-Pierce had a chance to show his absolute genuis for physical comedy. Sorry that it's a busy morning and I don't have time to look up the episode names, but "the one where..." will just have to do.

The one where Niles finds out that Maris is cheating on him with her Bavarian fencing instructor

The one with the iron, especially since there's no dialogue at all since the only other cast member in the scene is Eddie

And my favorite, where the entire cast just knocks it out of the ballpark, "Ham Radio"

I think the episode I laughed at hardest was the one where the new station manager thought Frasier was coming on to him.

As long as we're throwing out Frasier episodes, my vote would be "The Ski Lodge". It's like a "Three's Company" episode for smart people.

There's a lot of good episodes mentioned so far. Some overrated ones, too (like the Very Special Episodes of a comedy series that aren't particularly funny).

Some of my favourites:

"Bums: Making a Mess All Over the City" from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" -- fake cops, fake Guardian Angels, and best of all is Charlie's fake Serpico (which never fails to make me laugh!)

"The Concert" from "Corporate" -- Matt tries to prove he's still young and hip by making plans to see a band at 1 a.m. on a work night

"Dog Mayor", "Jon He Does It", "Mole", "Kim's Krafts", "Coma" from "Delocated" -- Season 2 of Delocated is one of the funniest seasons of a TV show that I have ever seen, it's too hard to pick just one or two

The Halloween episode of CSI: Las Vegas where the dwarf comes on to Catherine: "Ever have a man kiss you on the navel?"

Or the episode set at the brothel, where they can't decide on the CoD because the victim had received a half dozen different insults before he died.

I haven't watched Criminal Minds in ages, but the episode I remember best is the one where everyone at a picnic was served honest-to-God cannibal chili.
