The funny thing about this is that the episode was making fun of the tumblr crowd in a relatively on-the-nose and unflattering way, but the "fandom" seems to have missed the point and made it extremely popular.

I have never seen this show. What is the single best episode to watch from seasons 1-4? Choose wisely.
