Yeah it's labored.
15 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It has all the attributes of bad fifties TV-black servant, mouthy bratty kid, girls all in dresses and man-hungry June Cleavers, Dagwood and Blondie style situations. In the episode I saw, the kids swapped around a love-note Gildersleeve had penned to his fiancé w/ a classic Browning one, she put it into their poetry club as being his own(what-she was a fan of poetry yet had never read 'How do I love thee-let me count the ways'-?!), they too fall for it, etc. You know the drill.

"Pleasentville" did a decent job of sending this stuff up, though I can't say I'm a fan of the movie. This show-it worked better on radio. Gildersleeve is a funny character who's laugh and catch-phrases still echo in pop-culture(try the Red Guy in Cow and Chicken--trust me...it's in there...), but this series..forget it.

** outta ****
