Family Ties “The One Where Tom Hanks Plays a Drunk”

Family Ties relied a bit more on dramatic beats than most sitcoms of the day, leading to a proliferation of what might be called “very special episodes” today, though they generally weren’t billed that way at the time. But “Say Uncle” definitely qualifies. So join me now for a look back at a very special Family Ties, wherein very special guest star Tom Hanks struggles with the dark demons of alcoholism.”

Degrassi Junior High “Revolution!” (part 4 of 4)

“How can you not love a show that follows up an election for school president with an impeachment episode?

Degrassi Junior High “It's Late” (part 4 of 4)

“From a 2009 perspective, the idea of a show aimed at middle school kids doing a storyline where a 14 year old girl gets pregnant seems pretty ballsy. I can’t think of a show airing today that would have the guts to do this (besides, of course, Degrassi: The Next Generation, because once you’ve gone there, you can’t really un-go there).”
