  • The episode was great -- please continue . . .

    I didn't have enough time to watch the whole episode, but I did watch the funny parts. There was Bert Reynolds (who you know plays Robin on Batman) and he was funny. Then he was a stuntman and was a 'tough guy' I liked the part where Bert was encouraging Sonny to jump on him and Sonny warned him that he might hurt him. Yeah, right. Even though Bert Reynolds wasn't one who has those big muscles like the guys on the Chicago Bears, New York Giants, New England Patriots, he still wouldn't get hurt and Sonny couldn't tackle Bert even if Bert was trying to let him win. Then, I got to listen to the ending song, I Got You Babe, and I liked that song. It is such a perfect ending song.moreless
