I’ve been on a bit of a nostalgia kick. Last night Earl and I watched the first few episodes from the first season of “The Mothers-In-Law”. Honestly? It’s awful. While shows from the 1960s like “Bewitched” hold up fairly well, “The Mothers-In-Law” feels hopelessly out of date. One of the things we immediately noticed was the obviously stage trained actors of the main cast; television actors today don’t chew up the scenery nearly as much.
One show from that time period that was always fun to watch was “Laugh In”. Here’s a bit from their joke wall. I was surprised to learn today that Jo Ann Worley is still alive and kicking and as upbeat as ever.
