    Uh, nah. Review an episode of the short-lived game show Whew! instead. It really lives up to its' name. And I'd pick Urkel solely for his disasters (that, plus he was The Fastest Thing Alive); I liked him when I saw him on what was then ABC Family. Also, this episode was taken from WDIV, the Detroit station when the inspiration for Ron Burgundy- Mort Crim- worked for a long time.

    I was totally gonna do this and keep a blog of it, not necessarily with Blossom, but with all the other stuff in my collection. (Ironically, as of now I don't have any Blossom episodes, but I do have some VHS recordings from WDIV from this same time period, notably the Country Music Awards, a "Bloopers and Practical Jokes" special, and the occasional sitcom or late movie.)

    Also you have a similar reasoning to mine to reviewing an old show at this time. We've reached a point where the state of the world is so dour that you have to turn to cheesy old movies and sitcoms to get away from it all. Which reminds me: During a course about 20th century musical theatre I did a few years back, the teacher briefly talked about how if the world were to end one day (or something to that effect), then the Sound of Music would play on literally every channel, primarily because it was so soothing. I presume that a couple people have joked about that, but that course is what I associate that statement with.

    On that note, a site I regularly go to recently did an article on feel-good Muppet clips to "cure too-much-news syndrome". I'll close my commentary with a quote from that article: "Can’t believe the ignorance about the state of the world? It’s still wonderful, and there are puppies."

    The main page says this and "The Cheapest Games You Can Collect" came out in 2016, instead of 2017. Does it seem possible for you to fix that? I already asked this in that article's Talkback, but don't know if you saw it there.
