Home Improvement - S6E7 Icon: Link 

Published:

Description: Tim The Tool Man Taylor was a household name when it comes to mid-90's sitcoms. Home Improvement was an incredibly popular show and stayed that way through most of its run. There was something about Tim's bafoonery, Jill's tolerance, and the real life (but elevated) situations that they found themselves in. It was a show that did what all good shows do in that it put people in everyday situations but with just enough of a tweak to keep things light. Tim was an everyman, and every man wanted to watch a reflection of themselves in his childlike joy about horsepower.We had a good time with this one.Next week, Amy works her magic with Bewitched - S3E7!

Laverne and Shirley - S8E2 Icon: Link

Description: Schlameel! Schlamazel! This episode is all about one of the most famous comedy couples in classic TV, Laverne and Shirley. When it jumped the shark is hard to pin down.

That character in this instance is The Great Gazoo! The alien with unexplained magical powers who drops into the lives of the main characters and opens up a world of ... interesting plot points. Next time, Audie is going to take us to outer reaches of space with Star Trek!
