This is only going to be a brief statement and less of a review, but I feel nothing more needs to be said. This episode is the best TV episode I have ever seen in my life. I watch a lot of TV, I have seen pretty much the whole of Breaking Bad, The Wire, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, Sherlock, Mad Men, some Sopranos and more... basically everything except for the West Wing. Buridan's Ass exceeds every single episode that any of those great shows have come out with, and there have been some stunners. I know it is a big statement, and perhaps there are some other TV dramas I have yet to catch up with but I honestly believe it to be so. Flawless, majestic, unsurpassable.
