Breaking Bad achieves first perfect 10.0/10 rating in IMDB history

Nothing to do with the Bengals, but I had to post this...

Last Sunday's "Ozymandias" episode attained the first 10.0/10 rating for any episode for any show in IMDB history, with 16,000 and growing number of voters: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2301451/

The extended review on the page calls Ozymandias "the episode that has solidified Breaking Bad's status as the greatest show of all time."

In my own opinion, it's a very close call between Breaking Bad and The Wire, but I can definitely see how BB could top TW, especially considering BB still has two episodes to go in its fifth season that could (and probably will) seal the deal. The one very clear edge that BB has over any other show, especially TW and a show such as The Sopranos, is that it is finishing at its peak, an unreached peak by any other show at any point. The last and fifth season of TW was not up to par with the previous ones. Game of Thrones simply hasn't aired long enough to be put into serious discussion, and any enthusiasm for that TV show should be somewhat tempered when you factor in that the books apparently blow the show out of the water. There are a few other great shows like Band of Brothers which are miniseries rather than extended TV shows, so I'm not counting those either.

For what it's worth, on the Top 100 Episodes list ( http://www.imdb.com/list/kNju7dCT1HE/ ) for every episode of every TV show on IMDB, Breaking Bad holds 12 of the top 24 spots (the previous Sunday's episode "To'hajilee" holds #3), as well as 23 of the top 86 spots. That's one single TV show among thousands of TV shows and episodes.

If you haven't seen the show before, I very highly recommend you start doing so from Season 1 Episode 1...you'll thank me later.
