Did You Know?


TV's Frank: Yeah right, whatever. Well Joel, everyone knows that design is the combination of two separate elements. That's why we've taken interior design and meshed it with household pests, and come up with something we like to call... decorator roaches!
Dr. Forrester: Yes, roaches. Fashions come and go, but roaches are forever. Our Invention Exchange this week is: Swatch Roaches. Now, for you Southwest enthusiasts, we have this little number I like to call La Cucharacha. Hahaha, get it? Of course you do. And for the ...

Hercules, those are our guys, you idiot!
15 June 2016 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

While not one of the series' best episodes, this is still tons of fun. It feels weird watching something so old reference Prince when he recently died. Well, we can't be topical forever. The best part out of the theater was probably at the end when everyone talked about the film's deeper political meaning. Actually, I think they made an error as they say Cleopatra inspired this film when that was in 1963, four years after this was made. Maybe I just heard it in the wrong context. Hey, we even get one of my favorite lines from none other than TV's Frank at the end as he says, "Are you related to Keanu Reeves?". I don't know, just the way that's the last joke in the episode really makes it enjoyable. We rarely see Crow's legs and boy are they long and skinny! Mike Nelson had such a big part in the series before he was even a character!

I wasn't aware "jazz hands" were even around at this time. I am old. One of the best lines is, "I forgot how my muscles work!". The bit that made me laugh the most was when he said, "He's throwing a giant chocolate bunny!". Maybe I'm just easily entertained, but I loved that line. Look, I can't remember which of the characters said every line okay? I also like, "If you can (bend this), you're Uri Geller!". Worth it to always mock him. The jokes regarding the horse's identity at the beginning were great too. ***1/2
