“Very special episode” is an advertising term originally used in American television commercials to refer to an episodeof a situation comedy or television drama that deals with a serious or controversial social issue. The usage of the term peaked in the 1990s.
Reminds me of an era so long ago. Like something out of The Wonder Years. The traditional American family who lives in a suburb in a house with white picket fences, gathering around a TV in the evening. Today, we’re all educated enough to know what they are without having to be told, I assume.
Or are we?
