OK I'll try not to waste any time. Boxer is swamped and I'm trying to keep myself entertained and MCW going in her stead. So this week's choice was favorite TV show on the big screen and mine is without a doubt The Brady Bunch. Just absolute mocking of the late 60's and early 70's classic. Gary Cole as Mike Brady and Shelley Long as Carol were absolutely spot on. I actually thought I was watching Robert Reed and Flo Henderson. I couldn't find a short clip (who knew) but this one had what I wanted and its in the very begining. The first three minutes are pee your pants funny and if you can make it through the entire thing than rock on. So many episodes from the show combined into the movie. I went to this with Uncle Scooter's wife and Malta alum Bernie. I think Scotty might have been there as well. Bernie and I also went to the 20th anniversary of Grease together.
Anyway. I laughed my ass off especially when Mike is on the phone and when he's giving Jan advice. There were some other good shows to choose from out there but not going to say what they are so as not to potentially blog jinx anyone. Mike's plaid jacket and polka shirt are the bomb. The 5:23 mark has a great line. "Blue skies, clean living, Osmonds." My stomach hurts. Look at the chalkboard. Hysterical. Happy MCW!!
