It's a good thing that Shakespeare was not a Boob Tube Addict . . .
23 March 2016 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . because if he had been, instead of him writing HAMLET, MACBETH, OTHELLO, and TITUS, he would have churned out spoofs of I LOVE LUCY, OUR GANG, LEAVE IT TO BEAVER, THE HONEYMOONERS, and the other popular TV shows of his day. As bad as it must have been for a thoughtful person to stomach F TROOP, McHALE'S NAVY, MY MOTHER THE CAR, CAR 54 WHERE ARE YOU?, and MR. ED the first time around, leaving parodies for Posterity on such brainless fodder puts way too much of a burden on Posterity. It MUST have been clear to the Ancients that the shelf life of FATHER KNOWS BEST, GILLIGAN'S ISLAND, HOGAN'S HEROES, and BEWITCHED would never be long enough to collect any dust. Ask yourself, would HAMLET DREAM OF JEANNIE? Would MACBETH covet GREEN ACRES? Would HENRY V urge Uncle Joe into the breach at PETTICOAT JUNCTION? Could the BEVERLY HILLBILLIES have dispelled RICHARD III's "Winter of Discontent"? I think not. Then why in the Sam Hill did Warner Bros. hitch its wagon to THE HONEYMOONERS with its MICE FOLLIES parody?! I'm sure that Shakespeare did not binge-watch Jackie Gleason so that he could comprehend (that is, "get") the MICE FOLLIES. And if Willie won't eat his spinach, neither will I!
