What can I say about this episode? Has DEK gone over the deep end?
The most disconcerting scene had to be with Alan holding up the giant
queue cards for Denny. Don't get me wrong. I long ago accepted DEK's
direction with the show with satire and slapstick but this stuff is
in 3 stooges land now. And what's with this fascination that DEK has
with parties and Louie Armstrong music? I have seen the
same "touching party" scene several times in The Practice. But at
least there is was spread out over 8 seasons. The best one was when
Jimmy won his big trial against Tommy Silva and at the end of the
show it was a Christmas party where everyone is slow dancing to DEK's
favorite blues or jazz singer and there is Jimmy standing alone
knowing like a guardian angel he was there to protect his "family".
That one "party" scene was 10 times better the all the "party" scenes
on BL. What? You think it's cute to see Alan Shore dressed up like a
flamingo, bunny, Shirley? My God what is next?
Many people are angry with me if I post what they perceive as
negative comments about BL. Please believe me it is not about hate
but Love. My love for the 2 greatest characters ever created in TV
land. I think we want BL to succeed so badly that we will forgive DEK
for anything he does. I think that is wrong. Just like when you see a
family member doing something wrong it is your responsibility to
stand up and to intervene.
