Ology Presents: The 50 Best TV Episodes Ever 2012

Did OTH make it? 

If we’ve accepted, years later, that the world will never see another Sopranos, another Sex and the City, another LOST—hell, not even another Entourage—the TV landmarks of 2012 are the shows that stopped the focus on the past. When the brilliant dangers of Homeland arrived to shore, American Horror Story twisted fiction on its head, and Girls became twee-ly epic in all its polarizing mediocrity, they spearheaded a league of new series that took watercooler debate and discussion back to the main stage, making us fall in love with the small screen all over again. Even if the freshmen had to rival the brutal trials of Breaking Bad and the long-awaited return of Donald Draper’s Mad Men, they’re still responsible for forging new ground, reimaging and reinventing the ways we can be shocked, awed, challenged, gripped, enamored, and moved by television.

And yeah, cable may be responsible for the revival of must-see TV, but to count out critical wonder Modern Family, soap breakout Revenge, or The CW’s better-than-ever The Vampire Diaries would be a mistake. This year saw more reasons than ever to tune in, log on, watch live, record, stream, download, and get a season pass to all the incredible moments that jump off of the screen and into our lives. So enjoy our, um, very colorful list of the 50 greatest episodes for the class of 2011-2012. The television renaissance is alive and well. These are the moments that prove it.

    IA with “Danny Boy” being number 12. As for “One Tree Hill” I guess I see why it is #19 because
    it was the last episode and it was a good episode but I think there was so better episode from
    other shows. Maybe higher up.

    Danny Boy was the best epidode of S9 idc who disagrees with that lol Glad it got a high number :)
    For some reason I am glad they used a Naley pic for 9×13.

    So happy to see two OTH episodes on the list, it was one hell of a season. Danny Boy/One Tree Hill were definitely two of their strongest and Danny Boy is one of their best episodes ever so I’m so happy to see it on this list.

    Proof that keeping the show centered around core characters and story lines that tie into the premise of what this show was based on,a father and son relationship, is what makes this show OTH and what makes for good story telling. Sorry but know one really ever cared about all those secondary characters thrown at us week after week. Who knows if they didn’t deviate so much and delve into these unnecessary characters, maybe could’ve gone for a season 19.
