Best on the Box
Another funny, but odd, episode of this recently cancelled sitcom. It’s Virginia ( Martha Plimpton) and Burt’s ( Garret Dillahunt) 25th wedding anniversary and they celebrate it in “the most romantic place on earth” – the Bar None Dude Ranch ( named after the lack of mobile phone reception). The route they take to get there is circuitous, involving problem Bingo- gambling (“it’s a gateway game”), testicular cancer scares and the most groan- inducing cowboys and “Indians” visual pun you may ever see.
Did anyone in the world seriously sit down, watch an episode de from the last season and think to themselves: “Yeah, good show, but needs to be half an hour longer?” Here’s hoping the new hour- long, late- ate- evening format has been given a serious overhaul and finally matches es the talents of the people involved. Guests include Fifi Box, Lehmo, Mick k Molloy, Ed Kavalee and Sam Pang. Hosted by Tom Gleisner ( pictured). d).
