    I’m looking for examples of really good episodes of shows that are typically not considered very good? Episodes that were of an unusually high caliber for their respective shows.

    Though I personally loved Crowded, a lot of people did not, hence its cancellation after 1 season. However, I think it is undeniable that the episode with Betty White guest-starring was incredible.

    “Chapter 6” and “Chapter 7” of American Horror Story: Roanoke. AMAZING episodes from a OK show.

    I know most people loved it, but I absolutely HATED Master of None, however, I though Parents was an okay episode

    I never thought Home Improvement was a very good show; but they had one episode where they thought Randy might have cancer that I thought was very well done.

    Also, Suddenly Susan was by no means a good show, but they handled David Strickland’s death with class and dignity given the circumstances.

    It wasn’t great by any means, but the third episode of Roadies was good, despite the show being awful.

    “Fish In A Drawer” – Season 5 of Two & A Half Men

    This was the episode written by the writers of CSI when they did a crossover in terms of writing.

    Obviously, Aaron Spelling shows weren’t usually to be taken seriously, but occasionally his shows would produce an episode or two that were well done and that elevated their game, here are a few examples:

    Beverly Hills, 90210: Season 5, Episode 9 “Intervention”: The gang holds an intervention for Dylan who has fallen off the wagon and has been using drugs and drinking. For this type of show the episode was handled with a lot of sensitivity and depth. It was well acted and fairly well written.

    Melrose Place: Season 3, Episodes, 31-32, “The Big Bang Theory”: Kimberly blows up the building in a psychotic rage. Look, MP was never going to be a serious show like “E.R.” or “NYPD BLUE”, but they did what they did well and this is one example of an episode that was unusually captivating and enjoyable to watch.

    Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip had an excellent pilot, then crashed and burned hard.

    The last episode of Dollhouse used the concept to tell an interesting story.
