"One of the Boys" (episode 6 of Series Seven) is my favourite episode of My Family ever and strangely, it's not really because of the comedy element.
It may seem a bit strange to admit that when I first saw this episode, the part where Ben is defending Charlie, it brought a tear to my eye because it shows a side to Ben that we don't often see - it brings out his loving, caring side, the part where you can see why Susan fell in love with him and married him (among other things, of course), because, deep down, Ben really cares and he obviously can't stand people like Rogers mother - someone so selfish that she believes only her view of the world is correct, one where sex change isn't right.
Every time I think of the series and what I really love about it, I think of that scene in that episode. As I'm sitting here writing this review I could easily just go and watch that episode, over and over again, and enjoy it for all sorts of reasons (same with every episode, really) but I always feel the need to rewind to that scene and watch it again, and every time I do, I smile.
