Only saw 1 episode, but the best laugh I ever had!
15 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

This actually lasted 3 seasons!?!

Maybe I just caught an early episode, but I didn't think it would bode well for the series.Typical generic episode plot: strange illness makes people/animals sick. When Jane teaches Tarzan a new word, "antidote", Wolf Larson delivers what is the funniest line I've ever heard on a unintentional sitcom, in straight 'surfer-dude' monotone (You can almost hear him use the word 'like' at the beginning of the sentence):

"(Like,)Tarzan find antiDOTE." (Emphasis intended on the last syllable)

There, I've said my peace. I hope you found it as amusing as I did! :)
