Hands down, one of the best series episodes I've seen in my life
24 June 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

You know, it takes a lot to impress me and even more to touch me so deep that I break down and cry. And this episode touched me so deep that I don't think it could go any deeper. I won't lose one word about the plot because I wouldn't want to spoil it for anybody who will see it. But be assured: It will be an overwhelming experience that makes you realize so many things about yourself that you will probably want to laugh and cry at the same time. Although there is nothing remotely funny about this episode.

There are not many times that television creates magical moments. This episode is definitely one of them.

10 stars!
