  • It is Howard's birthday but he is down about it, feeling he hasn't achieved very much in his life. Everyone decides to make a 'This Is Your Life'-style show, but it makes him even more depressed, and he considers running off to Tahiti...

    This is a fair episode, but not really likely to make it to anyone's Top 10 episodes list. Even so, it is good to see Howard get an episode of his own.

    This isn't really a bad episode, I just didn't find it as funny or as grabbing as some others from the period. Almost like it was devised to bump up the season's episode number a bit.

    The scene between Fonzie and Howard is without a doubt the best of the episode, and is well acted by both Tom Bosley and Henry Winkler.

    All-in-all, a fair but average installment.
