(First of all, this slideshow contains spoilers for the entire year of 2014, so if you’re worried about that I’d fire up every streaming service available to mankind.)
So we already figured out which show was best overall, who acted the best, who actress-ed the best, and all that fun stuff. But really, handing out honors like that leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to each individual amazing show that was on in 2014. Just because a show wasn’t the best overall, doesn’t mean it didn’t have that one, special episode.
Ranked here, in no particular order, are the ten best single episodes that aired in the year 2014. The list includes, but isn’t limited to, a knife-wielding cannibal, a venomous snake fighting a mountain, the world’s most complex dick joke, and exactly 45 pancakes.
Oh, it’s been a good year.
