My 10 Best Episodes of "The Dick Van Dyke Show"

by jazzkinnison | created - 20 Jul 2014 | updated - 20 Jul 2014 | Public

I love TV. It's been a constant companion through the years when I've needed one and had nothing else around to be there for me. Comedies can make me forget about my troubles and make me laugh when I need to the most. Dramas can bring me inside a world I don't know while making me feel emotions and contemplate issues I might not otherwise. I am going to be making some lists of what I think are the 10 best episodes of various comedies and dramas I love. If you haven't watched some of these series, I hope I give you some ideas for episodes you can watch that may make you love them.
