Regarding "must see" episodes of classic Doctor Who
I found this website, yet I have not gotten around to following it.

Can anyone who has seen classic Doctor Who verify if this is close to accurate?

Classic Doctor Who recommended viewing list.

Brain of Morbius is A #1 best ep ever. Best scene in best ep is when the brain is accidentally dropped on the floor.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

It's blue on the list, so I suppose so far the list is accurate.

I think I'd concur with a lot of that list. Though how anyone could regard Pyramids Of Mars as anything lower than recommended is beyond me.

I'd also thoroughly recommend The Romans. A pure historical but played as a comedy, with Derek Francis as Nero. I won't spoil anything, I hope, but the way the TARDIS crew separates and have their own adventures, almost but not quite crossing paths, is wonderful.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

I have seen that episode. I watched a full two seasons before realizing there was just too much to watch.

I needed a condensed list of recommended episodes, and came across the one I posted.

You can't go wrong with the Hinchcliffe era, ie Tom Baker's first three seasons. That's essentially the golden period of the series. Not only recommended; more like required viewing.
