Okay, I have a Star Trek episode to try. It's an episode of Next Generation in Season 5 called the Inner Light. I won't spoil the story, and I would ask that no one else do it either. You can get it on Netflix by goinghereand selecting the last disc of the season. I personally have it on the Jean-Luc Picard collection, but that's not available through Netflix.
From a technical/film perspective, what is a better show?I felt the way you did until I watched the show again. It stands the test of time and even the test of multiple viewings better than the vast majority of anime ever made.
The Sea of Dyrac was early in the series, well before Shinji has to attack the Angel that took over one of the new Eva. The 200% synchronization, which causes him to "vanish" inside his Eva, occurs after that event, during the episode with the scene Rym described about Misato staring down the Angel attacking NERV.

You'll get to watch the same episode later in the series anyway.
@Gedavids - I love me some Gungrave, too, but there is no way the story is more meaningful than Eva. I wish it got more love, though, and I'd love to hear Scrym's thoughts on it. To anyone who wants to watch Gungrave, here is my advice: Skip the first episode and pretend it never happened. You'll get to watch the same episode later in the series anyway.
Gungrave episode one takes place in the middle of the series, after the main plot twist has been done. I feel that watching episode 1 ruins the show because it gives far too much away. Episode 13 repeats everything in episode 1 and gives very little else; there's no reason to watch it twice.
I think if you really wanna notice the point where the jokes stop coming, just watch for when Pen-Pen stops showing up.

Bravo - with the exception of the EvaMonkey himself, that was an excellent justification behind the qualities and humanity behind Eva.And gedavids, you know how much I like Gungrave.You KNOW.And maybe you sympathize more with the humanity that threads Brandon to Harry, which you may certainly do more than with anyone in Eva (few of us have ever piloted something that large, but most of us have had friends that have dragged us along bad ideas and paths.) However, what puts Eva up there is its definitive theatrical statement, its take on the HUMANITY'S PSYCHOLOGICAL STRUGGLE - "why do we suffer?"Eva strove to tell something very true about Humanity on a worldly scale. Gungrave answers "what makes you a friend, what makes you a leader, what makes you a brother," Eva dared to question "what makes us human and how do we deal with ourselves." I give Eva points for its over-the-top budgeting turning into a work of brilliant surfacy robot fighting, and equally strong character study.

The reason for Ninja Scroll being on my list. It was my first anime DVD in my collection and one of the first anime movies that I saw back in the day. A huge difference from the cookie cutter animation that was being produced in the States at the time. It was a very fluid animation in terms of movement. When I watch this animation I can not help but think of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon which came out afterwards.
