One of the best Hours of Television
25 August 2015 | by darthramiousSee all my reviews

Within minutes of this episode's start, I'm not too proud to admit I was fighting back tears at a shocking turn of events. But just as I was in the midst of refusing to believe that what I saw really happened, a huge plot twist teased that it might not have. And THEN the opening credits started.

Yes, this episode takes the motif of "Groundhog Day," but it handles the story so well, it shows that - if done right - you can apply the idea of a repeating day to various situations and make it work. In this case, by the time "Been There, Done That" ends, I had laughed, cried, laughed harder, and wanted to watch it all over again.

If there is any flaw that can be found with this episode, it's that in order to receive the true emotional impact of some of the scenes, you would need to have seen at least one previous episode to get an understanding of the characters and their relationships with one another. But that is minuscule, as most of the episode is played for laughs, and little to no knowledge of the characters are needed for the jokes to hit their mark.

You don't need to be a fantasy fan to appreciate good storytelling and funny jokes. That's why I tell anyone who has an opportunity to check out this great episode.
