No Need to Grade it, It's an A
17 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must echo the previous reviewers sentiments regarding this episode: it truly is one of the memorable and meaningful of the series.

I recently caught this episode again and I was surprised just how much of it I remembered - nearly the entire episode: not bad for not having watched it for 20 years. And thats unmistakably whats so great about this particular episode: it is heartwarming and heartwretching watching Kevin truly embrace his emotions and not be as confused by them like he usually is. We also empathize/sympathize with his loss because we've seen Kevin and Mr Collins go back and forth for a while now (This, i believe, is Mr Collins third time being the centerpiece of the episode).

Whats also amazing re-watching these episodes is the chance we now all have to look back on our own lives. First watching this when I was not even a teenager, I merely viewed it as a chance to get to know how it was like growing up in the late 60s/early 70s middle America. Now however, I do reminisce about my past teachers and how i appreciate them now.

One last notable item about this episode is the end song: Linda Ronstadt's Goodbye my Friend is fitting and if you happen to be in a reminiscing state, it might catch you vulnerable.
