  • Harvey Korman is fu-nny!

    9.4
    I know it would be weird to write a review of an episode of a show that has all these skits and songs and no purpose, but I watched the Midseason Premeire today and it was real funny, especially with Harvey Korman on the episode. The one thing I didn't like were some of Cher's 'jokes'. I know she was just playing but it sounded like she was really insulting Sonny's mom and dad about being fat. That ain't really funny, and I don't know why the audience applaused for that, 'cause it might of hurt Sonny's feelings if they really weren't jokes. But I liked at the end how they showed The Opera That Got No Applause, which was the longest skit in the episode and the funniest. It lasted over five minutes and the part at the end about copying All in the Family was funny.moreless
