Marisa’s Top 14 Episodes of 2014

December 24, 2014 by  

For my top episodes of the year, I did something different this year: I didn’t let myself choose anything from my top shows of 2014. There are certainly shows there that could (and maybe should) have installments listed here, but considering how much television I watch, I wanted to expand the field of shows versus just going over (again) why I loved the top shows.

The following episodes aren’t ranked (they’re listed alphabetically), but I did note which one would have been number one if I had gone that route…

The Simpsons: 'Brick Like Me'

Picture 15 of 15

For its astonishing 550th episode, THE SIMPSONS Lego-ized itself. It's incredible to do something so wholly unique more than two decades in, but the episode worked, as Homer was feeling dejected after Lisa went to see a movie with friends instead of building a Lego Springfield with him, and getting knocked unconscious once she was gone -- and ending up in a Lego version of his world. Technically, it worked because it was so freaking cool to see Springfield Lego-ized. Emotionally, it worked, because the show has often showcased the difficulty for Homer and Lisa to relate to each other, and when they do click and it gets taken away from them, they often go to weird (or desperate) places to maintain it. (Such as "HOMR," where Homer temporarily became smart after a crayon was removed from his brain.) The show could have easily played with the gimmick of the Lego world versus giving it a story of substance as well, but it did, and it gelled well.
