Impressions: M*A*S*H- The Young and the Restless

The Young and the Restless is the 19th episode of the 7th season of M*A*S*H. It gives a look at both Potter and Charles’ characters and is a rather amusing episode. I have only one real issue with it, but I am getting ahead of myself. The episode kicks off, showing us that Potter is hurting, then we move to a lecture with the doctors. … Continue reading Impressions: M*A*S*H- The Young and the Restless

Impressions: Masters of Horror- The Washingtonians

Warning for a graphic screenshot The Washingtonians was the 12th episode of the 2nd season of The Master of Horror. It was directed by Peter Medak, who doesn’t have the most notable directing career of the people involved with this show; he did, however, direct the masterpiece The Changeling. So his filmography overall might not stand out to those that aren’t the most devoted of … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- The Washingtonians

Impressions: King of the Hill- A Firefighting We Will Go

I am fairly confident most people have at least heard of King of the Hill, but some of those who have might not know much about it, so a little background. King of the Hill was created by Mike Judge (Beavis and Butt-head) and Greg Daniels (Parks and Recreation), and it ran from 1997 to 2010. King of the Hill follows “everyman” Hank Hill and … Continue reading Impressions: King of the Hill- A Firefighting We Will Go

Impressions: M*A*S*H- ‘Twas the Day After Christmas

To round out the month, I thought we would finish off with a Boxing Day episode, of which there are not many out there (got pretty close to it going live on Boxing Day too). For those that don’t know traditionally, Boxing Day happened the day after Christmas and involved the wealthy giving gifts to the poor. The 10th episode of the 10th season of … Continue reading Impressions: M*A*S*H- ‘Twas the Day After Christmas

Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- Christmas and the Hard Luck Kid

I thought for this month, we’d try to be a bit on theme and kick off with a Mary Tyler Moore Christmas episode. Christmas and the Hard Luck Kid is the 14th episode of the first season. It is a fun episode, and while it does manage to bring Christmas spirit, it is not overly in the audiences’ face, which can be a problem with … Continue reading Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- Christmas and the Hard Luck Kid

Impressions: Bob’s Burgers- Best of Thanksgiving

Bob’s Burgers is one of the few shows I know of that regularly still does Thanksgiving episodes. It didn’t happen every year in the early seasons but lately has become a regular feature of the show. Largely and understandably, because Bob is obsessed with the holiday as a chef. There are a lot of great Thanksgiving episodes in the series, and I thought I would … Continue reading Impressions: Bob’s Burgers- Best of Thanksgiving

Impressions: Ted Lasso Season 2 and Missed Messages

So recently, I was listening to a podcast, and Ted Lasso came up, and most of the people on the podcast took a pretty negative stance in regards to this show. It’s not an uncommon take. From the outside, Ted Lasso looks like an overly positive show where a good attitude is what saves the day. Heck, even in my own Impressions of the first … Continue reading Impressions: Ted Lasso Season 2 and Missed Messages

Impressions: Masters of Horror- Right to Die

So I am not going to lie – one of the interesting parts about going through this series for me has been the little bits of callbacks to big things that happened during the early 2000s. I talked about this with the Homecoming episode, which was very much in your face about it. Right to Die sort of went down the same path, although in … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- Right to Die

Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- The Dinner Party

In light of the recent passing of the great Ed Asner, I decided to give The Mary Tyler Moore Show a watch (I had seen a decent amount of episodes prior, but this is my first full watch-through). Mr. Asner played the rough but lovable Lou Grant in the show and was one of many of an incredible cast, sadly most of which have passed … Continue reading Impressions: The Mary Tyler Moore Show- The Dinner Party

Impressions: Masters of Horror- Homecoming

I spoke in my first Impressions of a Masters of Horror shortly about the series overall. A brief overview, it was a series that ran for two seasons on Showtime. Each entry was a horror short given to us by a “master of horror” director. They are entirely standalone, but there were a few common threads, as I said in the last piece. Two of … Continue reading Impressions: Masters of Horror- Homecoming
