Storyline

Miss Julie Brown created, wrote, co-produced, and starred in this weekly TV series. Each week, Julie would exhibit her wonderfully kooky personality with an occasional music artist, celebrity, or MTV VJ (eg.Weird Al Yankovic, Elvira, Martha Quinn, etc.). There was no real definite plot each week, just basically Julie Brown acting crazy and introducing assorted videos, but, there were occasional theme shows (eg. PMS days, The Julie Awards, and How To Be Cooler Than Everyone). Written by Michael Wagner <jw@inreach.com>

Quotes

Weird Al Yankovic: Do you mind if I make a sandwich? It's an old Yankovic family recipe. First I start with bread and then add peanut butter; creamy preferably...
Julie: Peanut butter! Made from peanuts! I prefer chunky, but we'll go with this...
Weird Al Yankovic: Then you add some vasoline...
Julie: Oh wow. Peanut butter and petrolium jelly - my favourite! Though I've never seen it utilized in the kitchen before...
Weird Al Yankovic: And then finally, beer!

Just Say Brilliant
17 June 2001 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

This is a gem, an underrated classic.The wardrobe looked like it was designed by Betsey Johnson on a binge; yes, Julie was kooky. And that was all played to the hilt. But that's what made the show work, because instead of fluff and nonsense you got satire and commentary with no apologies. This show was not afraid to be politically incorrect before it was even fashionable. Popular videos were interspersed with Julie's unbiased opinions, often putting her employer MTV at odds with the outraged artists. After a Sheena Easton video, Julie suggested that maybe we should all sleep with Prince so he could write hit songs for us as well. Other favorite targets were "Whine-y" Houston and Tawny Kataen (in her role as wife-at-the-time of David Coverdale). The running joke was her delusion of Jon Bon Jovi as her fiancee. I would love to see a version of this series for a new generation. Can you imagine how she would skewer the Boy Bands and artists such as Britney Spears, etc.? Shows like "Ally McBeal" seem contrived as they strain to be offbeat, quirky and smart. This show just is.
