Sitting by my computer with earbuds in on a Sunday afternoon a few minutes after finishing episode 32 of The Best Hit, I let the wave of nostalgia and bittersweet schmaltz wash over me slowly. I knew that I was going to miss tuning into the show; that the post-viewing show hole slump would be strong following the end of this drama. Week after stressful week, I eagerly looked forward to The Best Hit and its two-hour weekend alms of feel-good fun.
Slapstick moments, endearing relationships, relatable characters, and heart-warming messages about life provided me the break that I needed from the trappings of my everyday cycle. Even in The Best Hits most melodramatic moments, the show never ceases to dish out small morsels of ironic humor to ease the heart-wrench; ensuring that it never quite loses its light edge.
