Default Season 11, the final one

Because it's there: Who makes a list of things you want to do in twenty years? I thought it was okay but I liked the chat between M/F at the hill.

Ballad of Joanie and Chachi: Sometimes I wished they broke up for a season to see how they would be. They don't seem to break up for a long time kind of thing.

Where the guys are: I thought it was okay but I liked the chat Fonzie had with Barbara. I thought you could die if you are in a sauna all night long? Poor Howard, opens his big mouth again.

i hated the back and forth - are they together or are they apart between Joanie and Chachi, other than that I liked the final season

Default i was happy with the hub they didn't butcher welcome home

some episodes i have seen have been cut up pretty badly but i wasn't to upset i know some things were cut out but overall not a butcher job.the quality of the print seemed very good.ill give it on a scale of 1-10 an 8 and a half.

I know I haven't been doing this much but here it is...

Glove Story: It was okay. It was funny to see Howard holding on the the ropes when it gets stretched.

Vocational Education: It shows what happens when you have a degree but I thought it was cool that Roger had Fonzie come aboard.

You get what you pay for: Thought it was okay. But Howard should have listened to Joanie when she said it was a semester project and plus, don't they have to have a permit or something? Loved the water breaking through.

Kiss me Teach: I guess this kind of episode I didn't care for because of the subject but it was good acting though.

The people Vs. the Fonz: I liked this one and it shows how Fonize was willing to take the blame for something. If you've seen Like Mother, Like Daughter, you would know about the incident about Howard getting clobbered by Fonzie.

Apparently, I'm not sure what hitting is anymore. The guy was tossed, not hit. How is that hitting?

Social Studies: Meh.

The spirit is willing: Creepy.

So how was your weekend?: It was okay but I would think Mother Kelp would have realized by now that Marion won't leave her. I bet she still hates Her--Howard after that.

Low Notes: Meh.

School Dazed: It shows you can have a normal home life and have a drug problem sometimes.

Fonzie's spots: Wow... Howard does the unthinkable but I have to admit, why would you want to join something like that, they are mostly old men.

Fonzie moves out: I liked this one but I do wonder if Fonzie was able to stay at that place after he adopted.

Well, the one with The Fonz and that girl that resembled the twlight zone was weird.
I liked when Fonzie, Roger and Chacai were going to join the Leopard Lodge. I thought it was one of the funnier episodes and Potsie was actually in one for a change.
I agree that Joanie and Chacai should've broken up sooner because they were not apart for very long.
Another funny one was when Howard redid the bathroom all by himself and the water fell.
I kind of wish when Fonzie moved would have happened sooner just because what was really the point of him moving when the next episode was the series finale? If this episode happened sooner, you could have had some story with The Fonz somewhere else other than The Cunninghams.
I've already mentioned the Welcome Home episode already on the board. I think the episode should have been light and fluffy and funny. I mean the first part of the 2 part episode, 20 mins. in, Richie and Mr. C are fighting. Not to mention how angry Richie was at dinner when he couldnt get soda with his meal (which I think stinks anyway). I mean Richie and Ralph were both gone for 3 yrs. and the 2 parter could have been more comedic.
Btw, why the hell was Ralph not in part 2 although I did like when Richie beat up that guy in the bar and The Fonz says something of the effect of "Rich, shouldnt I be doing that"? I thought that was funny.

Default i love the last season always have

maybe because there was a point in time where if you didn't see these episodes
when they first aired it took forever for them to be repeated.but the stories were all decent the episodes were acted well and the WELCOME HOME episodes
as well as PASSAGES have been my all time favorites all in all season 11 was by far much better than some of the the rich and ralph less seasons

It was nice to see Richie again....but me and my roommate had the same response to Ralph. "I forgot how annoying he was!" Sorry, but Ralph really got on my nerves, every episode was "how are ya how are ya how are ya" and "I still got it!" Nothing against Don Most, because he's a good actor. I just never really cared for his character, I think it was definately time for his character to leave.

I read once that Garry Marshall said Happy Days was about "the pain of growing up," so I think this ep. really brought that full circle for Richie.

Yes, it did show the pain of growing up and it did happen to Richie.

I saw this on the "20 Biggest Mess-Ups/Mistakes in NBC History" thread (post #179)

"That ladt season was actually laying groundwork for a potential 12th year..."

How come they started to "lay the (potential) groundwork" for a 12th season of Happy Days if its popularity was declining during the early 1980s? Maybe at first, they didn't know that the ratings for season 11 of HD were going to drop below 50th place. I understand them changing up the theme song and the opening credits, but my opinion is that, logically, the show shouldn't have had its original run go past the spring of 1984 (aside from the fact that 5 episodes were burned off during the summer).
