8 March 2004 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

Horrible show full of forced laughter. While it was tied in to Happy Days no one seemed to notice that the shows were set in two different decades, the fifties and the seventies. Nancy Walker just showed up on Happy Days and they ignored the time warp. On Blansky, Eddie Mekka announces that he's going to visit his cousin Carmine on Laverne and Shirley, also set in the fifties. It's sad that a truly funny and smart comedian, Nancy Walker, walked into this dog of a show and tried to make it work. I guess she wanted to play lead once in her life. I'm glad to see that they cleaned up the hit-making formula when they got around to Joanie-Loves-Chachi a few years later.
