Day 1 — 11:00pm-12:00am
Oh, to think we were once so innocent! Conditioned as we were by years of TV-watching, we never thought it would be possible for a major character to be so unexpectedly dispatched. But no, when all seemed right with the world — Victor Drazen was dead, Nina was captured, Senator Palmer was safe — Jack discovered that his wife Teri had been shot dead by treasonous minx Nina, prompting the first ever use of the ”silent clock.”
In J.J. Abrams? Felicity, Kerri Russell starred as the titular character who passes up enrollment at Stanford to follow her high-school crush Ben (Scott Speedman) to the fictional University of New York. Dorm drama, life lessons, and an angst-filled love triangle followed.
Season 4, episode 13
The Sopranos’ imperfect marriage always got by on a screwed-up code of omertà, but it takes a near-fatal whacking when one of Tony’s ex-comares drunk-dials the house and tells Carm about Tony’s dalliances. The fallout is family drama at its unparalleled best. Watch this episode for Edie Falco’s fiery, Emmy-winning performance as a woman both exhausted and scorned. It’s a historic exercise in onscreen fearlessness. —Nicholas Fonseca
