I know this is old, but I wanted to throw in my two cents.

* While I didn't totally hate the pre-live audience episodes, they were (for the most part) weaker. Slower pacing, characters still not fleshed out, etc. But production-wise, they're very well-made. Great photography, in particular.

* I'm not a big fan of any of the "anniversary" clip shows. They're all sort of cop-outs, in my opinion. They do have a few decent jokes in between the clips, but when you're getting a string of scenes you've already seen mixed in with footage of the main characters laughing with cheesy grins and very little dialogue (other than "remember when this happened"?), you don't feel like you're getting your full half hour's worth.

* I honestly didn't mind the American musical episode that much, but the Valentines musical episode bored me to tears. During the Howard and Marion segment, they mention how the scene is just like their first date. By then, so many cutaways had been done, I was almost expecting a cutaway within that cutaway to happen.

* The Pinky Tuscadero episodes were pretty boring. Especially part two, where almost the entire show consists of that demolition derby. Constantly cutting away to closeups of characters inside their cars kills the idea of making the scene exciting (if you think cars hitting each other is even exciting), and having little to no humorous lines from anyone doesn't help.

* In retrospect, while I didn't hate the Hollywood episodes, they were also a bit dull. Besides the Fonz jumping the shark, the only thing about the episodes that really stick out for me is that guy that thought he was Jack Benny. Totally random gag, but still hilarious!

* I'm watching the three part Western episode for the first time (yes, I'm an HD newbie), and I have to admit I'm not really getting into it.

* I have yet to see a lot of the post-Richie/Ralph episodes, but I've seen bits and pieces of a handful of them, as well as a few full ones. From what I could tell, the last season (for the most part) was actually pretty decent. And that's not just because Richie and Ralph came back for a couple of episodes. There were actually a few that genuinely felt like classic "Happy Days" episodes.

Boring? Maybe today in the era of 2 and a Half Men, but back in 1976, when I was 12, the premier episode was THE television event of the season. I had a silly crush on Pinky, watching the promo during the summer, and it was only a shot of her ankles (hmmm... that explains a lot ...)

I hate shows that delete endings that are an important part. especially Westward Ho where Fonzie Ritche and Thunder ride into the sunset. the TV NEVER shows that!

I also vote for Fonzie Loves Pinky. I also kind of didn't like when they switched Arnolds. ( I don't like change lol!)

One I hate is Fonzie the Father where he makes Ritchie take care of a pregnant mother. I would have said Fonzie sit on it.

my other bad one is the birdhouse where it collapses through the roof . the judge rules for Howard and against Fonzie but the Fonz gets off the hook.

m choice is just about any episode from season 2 on when they changed the setting from the 50s to the 70s with a tiny amount of the 50s mixed in every once in a while and added that god-awful live audience.

Any musical episode, pre-or-post Richie is best skipped.

The final season's "The Spirit Is Willing." An urban legend as the eppie's plot line is really scraping the bottom of the barrel.

I like the Spirit is Willing actually but remember that was all a dream by Fonzie so of course parts of it would not make any sense. I guess I dislike Passages because Potsie and Ralph are not in it.
