Crop And Save
Charlie's Angels: Angel on a Roll (1981)
Good Story; Hrrible Dialog
I enjoyed the story itself, but not the way it was presented. It was just another Kris-centric episode written by Edward J Lakso. The series was titled Charlie's Angles, as in plural; not Charlie's Angel and her associates. I enjoy the episodes where they all work together to solve the crime much more than the episodes where Kris is the primary character and all the others are relegated to supporting roles. Some of the back and forth dialog was terrible and very contrived. While I liked the story idea and the story itself, I just think they ruined it with terrible dialog. It had the potential to be so much better; too bad the producers could not see that.
Laverne & Shirley: The Wedding (1979)
Best Wedding on TV
The first half is okay, but the wedding during the second half is fantastic. Don Bexley is great as Reverend Larry, the church choir is wonderful, and the comedy timing was perfect. I laughed so hard - watching the choir members trying not to laugh during Laverne and Shirley's antics. Even though there was much comedy during the wedding, it was very tastefully done.
Gilligan's Island: Topsy-Turvy (1966)
Gilligan Finally Saves the Day
This is one of my favorite episodes because Gilligan comes up with a plan to save everyone, instead of messing everything up as usual. He has saved the day a few times before, and each time he has that quirky smirk at the end.
Great Homage to Vaudeville
The skit after the opening monologue is hilarious. Jack and Bob go to their theatrical agent's office were we see some great juggling by Duke Johnson. Then, Jack and Bob do their schtick in front of Jesse White, the theatrical agent. Jesse keeps a straight face through most of it, but looses it when Jack flubs one of his lines. It is actually just as funny watching Jesse trying to regain his composure than it is watching the act. It doesn't help when Bob Hope capitalizes on the flub and makes Jesse laugh even more. Classic.
Laverne & Shirley (1976)
Timeless Classic Comedy
I was 15 when this series aired and did not understand it then; I was too young. I don't remember watching any reruns until now. Now, 45 years later, I fully understand it. I'm watching the series starting with Season 1, Episode 1, watching how the characters grow. This show is hilarious. Penny and Cindy's timing are perfect, the dialog is great, and the facial reactions are priceless, something I miss in current comedy series. Bottom line: I love this show. Gotta thank LOGO for showing it again.
