Can relate to remember your childhood when you had an imaginary friend!
8 May 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TZ" episode from season 2 titled "What Are Friends For"? Is something most can relate to as when they were younger most had a friend that was imaginary. Like this episode and in life it's far out still the thought and this episode provided good sentimental feel. As it proves it's okay for the mind to wonder and mingle with things that don't really exist.

Fred Savage(before his memorable "Wonder Years")is a lonely boy who's from a broken home and upon going away to his father(veteran character actor Tom Skerritt)he finds out new life. In fact this strange little friend that reappears was once the friend of the boy's father as dad also had the same imaginary friend! Overall nothing great an okay episode that's sentimental and most can relate to as they experienced this theme during their own childhood.
