A VERY SPECIAL THANKSGIVING SPECIAL
Nov 24 16
To celebrate both the holiday of Thanksgiving and the august tradition of special Thanksgiving episodes, we look back at two shows we covered in previous exhibits, watching holiday-themed episodes we skipped in the first go-round. Both A Different World and Third Rock From the Sun tackled everyone's favorite family-and-food holiday in their own unique way. Do they hold up as great TV? Do they capture the hallmarks of their respective shows? Is Whitley a classy drunk? Does Jan Hooks smear gravy in her cleavage (spoiler: yes)? And most importantly, can these eps hold a candle to WKRP's classic "Turkeys Away"? Episodes we watched: A Different World, "If You Like Pilgrim Coladas", Season 2 Ep 6 Third Rock From the Sun, "Gobble, Gobble, Dick, Dick", Season 2 Ep 10

Love the concept, love the show
It's so much fun to revisit old shows through the perspective of the present, and the hosts do a great job of presenting relevant and interesting information about the shows and the people who made them.

This husband-and-wife duo's re-examination of older TV shows through a modern lens is fun, even if you don't always agree with them.
