    I knew before checking that S3E10 would be “Fly”. That episode was clever and won critical acclaim, but I found it annoying and couldn’t wait for it to be over.

    And the best episode (of any TV show ever, according to some folks), S5E14 “Ozymandias”, had the same writer and director as “Fly”.

      When I saw that chart, I figured it might be that episode. I re-watched BB a few weeks ago but skipped that episode completely. I don’t believe the story actually progresses in it so nothing is lost by skipping it

    The fly took the hit so that there was the money to do the end of the season in style and it’s still paying the price

    First time around I didn’t enjoy the fly, but second watch through it felt like a moment for the pace to slow but characters stress to come to the forefront.

    Would there be bias in that only people who enjoyed the first few seaons, would continue and watch/rate the later ones. I know I stopped early season 3 because it just wasn’t doing it anymore.

      The funny thing about that to me is that the end of season 3 is when it goes from “good” to “holy shit this is amazing!” And keeps going up from there.

      There may be some survivorship bias, but the show absolutely gets better as it goes on.

    I will never understand its popularity. Like I get that people like it but people are so rabid about it that if you just shrug and say it wasn’t your thing you get screamed at about how you’re “objectively” wrong
