  • If you are a Marmaduke Gracen fan, this is the episode you have been waiting for. For those out of the loop, Marmaduke is the 6'4" 240lb, 22-year-old, 12-year-old whose style, mannersims and awkward social graces are the funniest and quirkiest on TV.

    T. J. Miller (Marmaduke Gracen) is the enigmatic, totally off-the-wall son of carpooler Fred Goss and his wife Faith Ford. Every week, Marmaduke has some new 'path to riches' scheme that is usually the funniest (if not the weirdest) thread in the episode plot line.

    Well, this week he is going to buy sheep who will become the automatic lawnmowers for any area where he deploys them - if his father will co-sign for the loan. He won't, so 'the Duke' leaves home (well, a hundred yards away at Laird's house where he is welcome as the son Laird never had). Marmaduke is almost always credited with the funniest quotes on this show, but this half-hour takes the cake. Even if this show goes no further than May, Miller will find a new spot soon.

    In other highlights, Aubrey revisits his 'Earth, Wind and Fire' days and Dougie and Cindy find their 'wild side.'

    In a series which has been a bit of a disappointment for me (except for a couple of episodes), 'Lost in America' and 'Wheels of Fortune' have been standout installments. Highly recommend you see this two - if you get the chance.
