Top Five Fridays: Favorite TV Couples

5. Zack and Kelly from Saved by the Bell No other couple exemplifies the early 90's quite like Zack and Kelly. Whaaaaat was going on here?

Top Five Friday: Christmas Episodes

Ohhh The CHRISTMAS episode. Will it be heartwarming? Will it remind me of how important family and friends are? Will I learn that expensive presents and lavish parties should take a back seat to helping mankind? Or for once, will I be glad I'm not a fiasco/tragedy/calamity prone TV family whose belief in the spirit... Continue Reading →

Top Five Friday’s: Burst into Song (Continued)

Friends "The One with Ross's Wedding: Part I" (1998) I am aware that by including an episode of Friends in a list of top anything greatly reduces my credibility as a television aficionado, but go ahead and chastise me, this episode was great. The ENTIRE cast (sans Phoebe, who was super pregnant,... Continue Reading →

Top Five Fridays! Continued…
