Great Thanksgiving Episodes Pt. 4: Turkeys Away!

Posted on November 26, 2009

One of our commenters stole the thunder on this one, but it was an obvious pick anyway. Easily the most famous episode of WKRP in Cincinnati: “Turkeys Away.” It was just the seventh episode of the whole series, but it has long gone down as one of the best jokes in television history. And as […]

Great Thanksgiving Episodes Pt. 3 — Beg Your Pardon?

Posted on November 25, 2009

For the record, The West Wing was already on my list of Thanksgiving episodes before CJ mentioned it on the first post. Two of the most entertaining moments in the show’s history took place on Thanksgiving, making them a must on this list. Of course, I couldn’t choose which is better, so I’ve included both […]

Great Thanksgiving Episodes Pt. 2: Giblets for Murray

Posted on November 24, 2009

In putting this list together, I wanted to include something from my Nick-at-Nite days. I don’t do nearly enough about those old favorites of mine. Hopefully, that will change in the future. All those sitcoms would do holiday themed episodes. I can still clearly remember Dick Van Dyke and his cast dressing as Christmas marionettes […]

Great Thanksgiving Episodes Pt 1: Slapsgiving

Posted on November 23, 2009

Who doesn’t love themed episodes of favorite shows? So let’s prepare for Thanksgiving by picking four especially memorable and fantastic episodes of television all about the turkeys. I thought about doing this for Halloween, but with my new infatuation with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, they probably would have all come from there. Also considered it […]

Cheers – “Fairy Tales Can Come True” (S3:E4)

Posted on October 25, 2013

How perfect! A Halloween themed episode a few days before Halloween. I’m a sucker for special holiday episodes. I love making lists about them. As I demonstrated, there are a lot of classic Thanksgiving episodes. Tons of Christmas ones. Valentine’s Day gets used a lot, though not a lot of classics jump out at me. […]

“Cheers” — Rebound (S3:E1,2)

Posted on October 24, 2013

Like I said in my re-introductory post, I owe the inspiration for returning to this blog to the A.V. Club, who did a wonderful job reviewing the first two seasons of “Cheers.” Now I’ll try to take their lead and provide episodic reviews for the other nine seasons! I’ll sprinkle in my thoughts on the […]

My dreams were my ticket out

Posted on October 17, 2013

Any TV fan worth his weight in remote controls knows the above title comes from the classic theme song to “Welcome Back, Kotter.” Since I actually wanted to title this post “Welcome Back, Feeny,” I figured diverging a little bit would be creative. In actuality, it’s just turned into an odd tangent that seems out […]

Glum Review: “Never Been Kissed” (S2:E6)

Posted on November 9, 2010

Time to glum it up after another two-week hiatus. *************************************************************** So, is there a once-an-episode shirtless requirement for Sam? I might deduct points from this, but I’m sure the ladies enjoy it. “Almost killing a civil servant” — ultimate buzzkill Puck’s first name is Noah? I did not remember that. I’d go by Puck as […]

Genre: Half-Hour Holiday Special

Posted on December 1, 2009

First of all, apologies for posting wrong information.  I thought Prep and Landing was supposed to premiere tonight.  Turns out it’s not premiering until next Tuesday, December 8. Second, this is the rhetorical critic in me, but I love genres (presidential apologias, farewell addresses, inaugurals).  I also think the concept of genre is useful when […]
