Do you love over-the-top crime dramas? How about cutesy animated short films? Or perhaps you’re more of a fan of heartwarming family comedies. Whether it’s a comedy show dipping its toes into drama, or a procedural incorporating elements of horror, genre crossovers provide a fresh perspective on familiar material.
From comedies like 30 Rock and Modern Family to a sci-fi drama like Battlestar Galactica, there is probably something for everyone on this list. These are episodes that deviate from the regular format of the show in order to try something new and different. In many cases, these experiments are pretty successful and offer a refreshing change of pace for both the characters and viewers alike.
Whatever your taste, there’s probably an episode on this list for yo. From "A Fistful Of Paintballs" to "Take Me Out To The Holosuite," we’ve pretty much got something for everyone. So sit back, relax, and enjoy!
