I've heard the rumors of Bette battling with the 'brass'. If this was my show, I wouldn't just be battling, I'd be strategically aiming scud missles at those execs. I'd actually zone into the exact area where Bette accidentally kicks guest star Tim Curry in this episode.
It was delightful to watch two such big hams like Midler and Curry battle for the prize for biggest mugger in this show. Not many can pull it off without making the audience wretch enmass.
Well, we might not be wretching yet, but that could be that we're too shocked right now to do so.
While this offering fared little better than the previous one, it still isn't good tv. It's good Bette Midler yes (but when isn't it?)
