The Weekend, from season one

Lorrie Moore already explained why this show doesn't really ultimately work, but this episode is a symphony. Logging this to avoid forgetting the moments of pain and identity, the use of sunset over midwestern fields, Mandy Patinkin's voice, and effective dialogue between two human bodies of pain. Totally effective, and one of the best episodes of anything I have ever seen. I wish the rest of the series had sustained this tension without becoming ridiculous.
