Favorite Television Episodes of the 2010s

December 26, 2019 by  

The 2010s brought up Peak TV, which meant we got thousands of incredible hours of television. As we head into a new decade, we looked back at a few of our favorite episodes that aired from 2010-2019*…

ENLISTED: "Alive Day"

Picture 12 of 47

What we said then: “ENLISTED was a beautiful show, and while I absolutely lament its short life, in many ways, "Alive Day" was a perfect ending to the series: due to a lack of funds, a ball that was planned (and was going to honor Cody) was canceled, and the Rear D soldiers had to scramble to put together on their own, while Pete and his brothers celebrated the anniversary of Pete nearly dying in Afghanistan. It sounds morbid, but it ended up being sentimental and life-affirming. (Which basically sums up so much of ENLISTED in general, too.) Pete's post-war PTSD -- a topic that few shows, let alone a network comedy would dare touch -- kicked in after he saw footage of troops deployed overseas, and his brothers (and the rest of the Rear D troops) found him by the beach. They reiterated their family status (both literally and figuratively), and it was beautiful. At the end of the day, these guys loved and supported each other when the times got rough, no matter what. Pete's growth over the series to acknowledge his troubles post-coming home and the importance of what the soldiers were doing in Rear D came full circle in probably the best way possible. (And if you didn't cry while watching the episode, please tell me your magical secret.)”
