As I said in the introduction to this series, I don’t intend to do full reviews of all the episodes. Perhaps, like with the Pilot, I might be a bit more talkative about the episodes I feel were extra special but for the most part I’m going to try to do what I said in the introduction. Single out the things about each Season that made them memorable.
Season One was a magical season and it was filled with many wonderful memories. As I was trying to decide the best way to go about my next post, I remembered that I had actually done a “remember the season” post about Season One years ago. Back in November 2014, in the days leading up to the 100th episode, I had a lot of fun one night on Twitter with a picspam of favorite memories from Season 1. In June, after Season 5 ended, in a bit of summertime fun, I compiled my Tweets into a blog post.
Back then, this blog was still in its infancy so not many people probably saw that June 2015 post, so I thought, as part of this “Decade of Fun” series, I’d resurrect it. This is the exact order of the picspam as posted back in November 2014 on Twitter. It wasn’t in any particular order, just me tweeting stuff as my mind rambled, as it usually does. I did add just a few additional pictures on this post because I couldn’t believe I had left them out the first time. They were such gems.
Also, back in Season 1, I did very few of my own screen captures. I’ve kept the watermarks intact on all photos that are not mine. You’ll notice that a vast majority of them are from the long ago shuttered “AOLR” website. What a fantastic site that was! Oh well…here it is…I hope you enjoy the wonderful memories.
