A mess of a show
11 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

This program was really designed as a hatchet job against the hippie movement, which Danny Thomas clearly found offensive. The jokes were basically setups for him to comment on "kids these days" and espouse the values of the 1950s. Compared with the programming around it--Smothers Brothers, Laugh In etc., it seemed reactionary, a perfect sop to the old white guys who were appalled that men were wearing their hair like girls, and girls were taking control of their own sexuality. Danny Thomas clearly yearned for a return to the 50s, and expressed it with every harsh, unfunny joke.

THAT, in itself, might be funny, to see how far off he was for his place in time. But why subject yourself to his bitterness?
