This is a thread to talk about the scenes or episodes of shows that turned you into a fan.
Dragonball Z: I'd first heard about the show in 6th grade, and I'd seen a few random episodes. But, it didnt' look all that interesting to me. I was still pretty new to anime, and the idea of shows in story arcs was foreign to me. One day, I caught an episode from the Namek arc on Toonami, where Gohan and Krillin rescue Dende from Freeza's henchmen, and from that day on, I tuned in everyday to see what happened next.
Breaking Bad: I thought the show opened up pretty strong, building up the circumstances behind Walt's decision to start cooking meth. But, the pacing of the first season was just too slow. I still continued watching, since I liked how they showed him struggling with his morality. Crazy Handful of Nothin' got me hooked. To me, Walt adopting his Heisenberg persona guaranteed that I'd keep watching to see how he'd end up.
Steven Universe: I actually kind of made a mistake by starting out with a random episode; Cry For Help, since I didn't know there was any continuity. Later on, I watched the show from the beginning, and I really loved how the Gems' relationship with Steven was shown. I liked it from the start, but I think the episode that really grabbed my attention was Giant Woman. It was the first time that we saw some conflict between the Gems with Pearl and Amethyst bickering, and seeing them put aside their differences to fuse and save Steven made me appreciate them even more.
