While season 5 of Happy Days (out of 11 seasons = 255 episodes) is most known for “Jumping the Shark”, episode 22 also introduced Robin Williams as Mork, who got his own tv spin-off. Season 11 was the end and famously included the series kiss of death: Ted McGinley

For you, what were the Jump the Shark moments of other series?

OUR CRUMBLING DEMOCRACY
My facility's Furdie counterpart is having their annual meeting this week, so I've got the Zoom going in the background while I do my work. One speaker made a reference to pseudoknots and quasi-knots, which I didn't get (it's biology, but not my field of biology), so I tried checking online for "pseudoknot vs quasi-knot" and didn't really find anything helpful. I asked in the Q&A about this terminology, and for resources where I might read more about it.
The presenter (a grad student), was a bit sheepish in saying that it was a small joke, but he did go ahead and explain why he used two different terms, and he also cited a group whose work I could look into. That's all great, but then the moderator said, "For resources, you can check Google."
So fucking condescending. Excuse yourself, I DID check Google and found nothing useful. Ugh Furdies. 😡
In the comments, I thanked the speaker and said to the moderator: I should mention that I did check Google, which unfortunately didn’t seem to catch the joke :)
