Buzz In: Which TV Shows Had Great First Episodes?

The fall TV season is officially upon us, with the first new drama of the season — Fox's "K-Ville" — premiering Monday night. Finally, everyone will get to see the pilot episodes I've been watching all summer! One thing about pilots is that they can be misleading: Some series with bad pilots have gone on to be great shows, while some shows with great pilots never really worked as series.

So, in honor of all the first episodes we'll be watching over the next couple of weeks, I wanted to ask about your favorite first episodes — the ones that really sucked you in and made you know the show would be one for you to watch. Last fall's premiere of "Friday Night Lights" was like that for me, as was the first episode of "Grey's Anatomy," which is still one of my top five sob-inducing TV moments. What are yours?
