Honestly, almost never while watching a show will I sit down and say "the show's never gonna get as good as this episode", and even when looking after the fact it's hard to narrow it down to just one episode. Plus, unless it's a show I really, really liked, I'm not going to remember individual episodes in that much detail.

If I was allowed to extend it to three favorites I'd say episodes 22-24 of Evangelion are my favorite episodes in that show, since they show the complete mental breakdowns of Asuka, Rei, and Shinji respectively. However, it's not like I knew these were the best episodes at the time.

Could easily turn around and say something like, "Perfection is the ability to tolerate imperfections". See what I've done? I'm just playing with words and stringing them together to make some it appear like some sort of deep philosophy.

Given you are just playing, it's easy to understand how you didn't turn anything around.

I understand your sentiment, but in some cases a certain episode just clicks as you're watching it and you instantly recognize your own interpretation of perfection right there in front of you.


Now that I understand, I guess in those terms you shouldn't dread future episodes as not being as good but excited to see if you can watch the process happen again. Don't you think that without the first 5, episode 6 wouldn't have been able to meet your standard of perfect? I'd say in that case if it could happen once why not again? Same to zipzo lol, I have no doubt more epic episodes are to come once Ryuko gets closer to Satsuki again.

The recent episode was definitely great, but better than or as good as episode 3? Laughable assertion.

As I said already...I have every bit of confidence that level of entertainment will be revisited, but it's still quite astounding to me that they front-loaded such an immensely intense episode. I'm sure everyone had that "finale" feeling running through their veins as they watched.

So my sentiment still stands, I believe moderation went out the window when they came up with that episode and animated it.
