This is one of the greatest episodes of any television show ever. It's the famous 'punk rock' episode and it delivers on every level. From the band Mayhem shouting their anthem "Next Stop, Nowhere" to the talk show that the punk kids appear on, telling the world that they are "fighting boredom." Forget the last episode of M.A.S.H.-this one is far more important. There are classic scenes that take place at a local L.A. punk hangout that include the punk band Mayhem (concocted for the show), where the punk kids sneer and hurl insults at Quincy the likes of "your the problem! Your whole damn sick society is the problem!," and "Besides-who cares man..." The episode itself is a raving advertisement for normality and is laugh out loud fantastic. As Quincy spends the entire episode trying to locate a killer who took an ice pick to some dudes back in a "slam pit" while zonked out on pills, the punk kids are subjected to a total lack of understanding, a masterful touch of suburban propaganda that'll have you giggling for weeks to come.
