Showing a stream in Immediate Window (for posterity)

Recording how to show a stream's contents in Immediate Window for posterity. In this example it's the response stream when a WebClient raises an exception:

System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString((byte[])$exception.Response.GetResponseStream().GetType().GetMethod("InternalGetBuffer", System.Reflection.BindingFlags.Instance | System.Reflection.BindingFlags.NonPublic).Invoke($exception.Response.GetResponseStream(), null))
