Best Acting in a TV Scene

It seems to me that the acting quality has really picked up in some of these TV series. Post up scenes that have the best acting.

My nomination is when Arya leaves the Hound in Game of Thrones. Shouldn't need a spoiler, but I'll put it in one anyway.

Spoiler!


There are lots of good scenes from Game of Thrones, but there are other good acting jobs on TV. What are yours?

If not the Game of Thrones scene, I'd probably have to go to Hugh Laurie as House in any number of scenes.

I agree that acting as well as writing and directing has gotten a lot better in recent years.

I think this is a function of the changing definitions of TV and movies. Movies are now about overseas profitability as much as anything. We had an indie wave in the late 90s, early aughts, but now it's about what Asia is going to bring in. That's why big budget comedies, especially wordy comedies, have fallen to big budget action.

TV is now where prestige lies. TV is no longer that box with grainy images in the living room. It's what we view with rapt attention, whether on a big screen with superb resolution, or a personal device, in our own little world of our complete control, still in amazing resolution.

But coming up with a 'best scene' requires some pondering, because television storytelling is long form, and actors aren't looking for Oscar bait clips. So much of the superb acting that comes to mind are beats and moments, lines delivered with razor sharp acuity in keeping with the character we've come to love [or hate] and know, glances, drawing of breath and glistening of eyes.

But to contribute at this time, I'll fall back on something I've lauded often.

That wouldn't spoil it too much if a person hadn't seen it. Either way, if a person hasn't caught up by now, they likely never will.

Aaron Paul has some really amazing scenes, as well. Probably on par with Cranston, and that's my bad for not mentioning that sooner.

Too bad. You bailed on the best TV show of the past decade way too early.

Yeah, it is. Amazing that he was supposed to die in the first season, but he's such a great actor, they had to keep him around.
