Default Season 10

A woman not under the influence: Should have been called Fonzie grows up. I liked it but nowadays kids are told not to talk to strangers. And maybe it's me but it seems Heather shouts her lines.

Letting go: I liked it but liked the talk between H/J and F/H.

Empty Nest: It was cool but got some problems with the scenes... Howard would drive up, wouldn't he have seen the RV thing in the drive way? Fonzie asks where have you been doing the last 4 years? 4 years? When I count it's 8 or 9 years... But not sure if he went to Japan for a time then after the divorce went to the peace corps.

A Night at the Circus: It was kinda blah. Some funny scenes but I would think that Dick could have held off going to another country and make sure that K.C gets to the right boarding school.

It's not just you. I've noticed that quite a bit, and it's very annoying. It's the main reason I never liked the Heather character.

Default season ten is my least favorite of all hd seasons

i consider myself a big happy days fan,and for whatever reasons dislike season 10 the most.maybe its because its more like a fonzie loves ashley spin off
maybe because it seemed to get away from arnolds where the series had always been centered around.maybe because joannie wasn't around and potsie became really pathetic.for whatever reason i really miss richie and ralph more so in the 10th session than in the other seasons without them.

I've noticed that with a LOT of child actors, particularly on older shows. Especially if filmed in front of an audience. (Was HD still shot in front of an audience in season 10?)

Yes, it was filmed before a studio audience...

Nowadays they have canned laughter right? Audience isn't there.

A little case of revenge: I liked this one... Tom Hanks was great, wished he came back again. Fonz looks sooo cute in a suit..

Who gives a Hootenany: Should have been called Fonzie learns to Change. It was okay. Joanie said in this episode that Richie told her she couldn't carry a tune, well, I don't think they are that good singers.

Going Steady: It was just blah sorta. But I guess this is a way for Fonzie to learn things... Oh and um... Grandma Nussbaum has been disowned 4 times? What happened to her husbands?

Such a nice girl: Didn't like this at all.

Actually, just the opposite. Most of today's sitcoms not filmed in front of an audience have no laugh track whatsover. Which is the way it should be.

Getting back to Fonzie and Ashley, I remember the National Enquirer printing an item that Fonz and Ashley were going to get their own spin off.



The show was already creatively wobbly, past it's prime and falling in the ratings. That would have certainly ended it sooner. But considering the source, it was probably untrue.

I agree that Scott was not a good singer, but I always liked Erin's voice.

There's no business, like no business: I liked this one. Fonz sure don't give up. Potsie sure got hired pretty quickly. When Howard has decided to move the store, how can Potsie suddenly work for Howard? Sheesh.

Since I don't have you: This was okay but I'm sure things like this do happen in real life. This episode reminded me of the one where Richie was ready to drop everything and go with Barbara.

Hello, Pfisters: Man, Fonzie sure is a pain in the ass in this episode. I do agree that it is strange that her parents invite her to an anniversary bash. Howard and the queen's beef.. man, that musta been one hell of a good beef, huh Howie? That's one big assed burger too pal..

I drink, therefore I am: Didn't care for this episode. It does show that you can make suggestions, tell people how you feel they can always, almost always make the wrong decision. Ashley seemed way too cool and calm for a mom whose daughter got hit.

EDIT: I forgot what episode it was, do we assume that Howard moved his store or closed it?

Potsie began working at the store in the season 9 opener "Home Movies."

Right. But in the 'No buisness' episode, Howard had to let Potsie go and he went to another hardware store.

Then in the 'Life is' episode, he quits that store and works for Mr. C?

Prisoner of Love: I kinda liked this one and it does show that sometimes convicts aren't really given a fair shot.. Even if it is understandable.

Life is more important than show business: I liked this one too... So Howard closed the store and built a bigger one?

Nervous Romance: Loved the part about the guy with the cigar being dumped on and pushed out. And loved the ending part where Howard realizes he said something he shouldn't have said. Those are the only two things I liked about this very boring episode.

I am not at liberty: Didn't like this one.

I would have to guess that there was originally an on-screen explanation for this somewhere, but was probably lost to a syndication cut.

Wonder if the episode that is on youtube would have that explanation.

Would it make sense that he closes the small store and opens another bigger store somewhere else? Could this be what happened?

If I decide to write HD story after the 10th season I just want to get the situation right.
