When I looked at the list, I definitely expected this one to fall early just based on your own personal preferences.

65. Heads Will Roll
Origin: Asura’s Wrath (2012)
Nominated by: Pirateking2000 (2/4 remaining)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAnGjYQBvdc

This scene has a lot of emotion packed into it, but I do have one pretty big problem with it. This is mere personal preference, but I don't think the graphical art style of the game really conveys the emotion as properly as it should. Now this may be a budgetary issue, but Asura's scream doesn't really feel as powerful as it should, and I really blame the weak explosion of the big fleet as the main driving force as to why this doesn't fully work for me. It looks like a stock effect and absolutely nothing like a thousand ships exploding at once. However, the lead up to the scream is still decently effective and Asura himself looks pretty great, especially in his new form. It doesn't really make me feel that much, but hey, I recognize the effort at least.

64. Mal kicks dude into engine
Origin: Firefly (The Train Job, S1E2, 2002)
Nominated by: Redrocket (1/4 remaining)

A fun little scene to be sure, if a little simple. You kind of expect the punchline, but Crow's tough guy speech and Mal's indifference to the actual kicking still got a hearty laugh out of me! Then, you have the follow-up henchman obviously willing to cooperate. Honestly, I don't really have much to say about this scene, it's fun for what it is, there's nothing really bad about it, but I guess it doesn't stand out enough. Its biggest crime here is playing it too safe!

63. Duct Tape
Origin: Burn Notice (Pilot, S1E1, 2007)
Nominated by: Murphiroth (1/4 remaining)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsGP_6N9i0w

I kept flip-flopping on this clip like crazy. I am a bit of a sucker for this snappy USA Network style, with its quick pace and witty, hipster narration, invoking nostalgic memories of watching shows like Psych, Monk, Covert Affairs, and Suits. But, I had to reign myself in, and really look at this scene critically. I love Westen's approach to the situation, it's both calculated (showing off Westen's versatile skillset) and clever (showing Westen's unique approach to complicated situations). However, I realized what doesn't work as well for me is the extremely dated "stop-and-go" editing style that makes things feel more choppy than they should. In fact, the whole sequence of Westen breaking through the back wall is shown really weird and makes the placement of certain rooms and characters a little confusing. The drug dealer is a huge over-actor too. Overall, this scene is still one I enjoy, and I think I'll always remember that "duct tape makes you smart".

It definitely feels kind of choppy with the back wall bits but the cheery "Hi! It's your neighbor!" is great and sets up the tone of the show.

It's weird. I didn't really get reared on the Psych/Monk era of USA, but I always find those more appealing than Suits, despite being lower budgeted shows.

I meant more of the "Suits Era" I guess. I feel like Burn Notice is a part of it. I don't know why, but those shows always feel like they are in search of a plot whereas the other shows feel more like character-driven pieces.

62. - "I thought you said you were a beekeeper?"
Origin: Toast of London (Addictive Personality, S1E1, 2013)
Nominated by: The Code is Bosco (1/4 remaining)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfDOVYLQsUY

Normally, "beak-keeper" would be a horrible cheesy pun and worthy of an eye-roll, but this Toast of London clip really makes it work. Morgana Robinson does a great job of playing this unhinged fling, nonchalantly dismissing troubling things such as a dark, bloody stain on the carpet while casually talking about having stabbed her boyfriend. I love dark comedy, and this really hits my humor center perfectly. Going back to the pun, it really puts the visuals of the beak collection in a new, more terrifyingly weird light. Some things I don't like as much is the flat as hell lighting, camera work, and Matt Berry's performance, which is serviceable but not spectacular (and it's strange, because I usually enjoy his work). Also, some of the jokes like forgetting your trousers don't land for me as much as the black humor stuff. Still, there's a good bit to like here and I'd be remiss to say I didn't enjoy it.
