user picture Elizabeth: So I don't remember the subtext heavy conversation in Uhto the Breach, but since I haven't watched a 7th season episode since freshman year I'm not super surprised. This list is really entertaining to read because it encapsulates most of my favorite scenes in general. I love how much you love angstiness. I want to do this for another one of my favorite shows. Any suggestions? jun 4 2009
user picture Laura: Friday Night Lights, Grey's Anatomy or Bones? Although I feel like Grey's could take a really long time. Maybe Supernatural since there are usually only a few episodes a season. Look up the episode recap of "Unto the Breach" on TV.com, and the conversation is included.
