"And wait till you see who Gene's new neighbor is..."
14 July 2002 | by (Hanover Park, IL) – See all my reviews

I tuned in only for episode #14 "Hanging with Mr. Cooper": Gene is kept awake all night by his new noisy neighbors. Against his wife's advice, he heads over to the house to ask the owner to keep the noise down. He learns his new neighbor's name, Alice, but is unsuccessful at locating her at the party. He simply asks one of the guests to relay the message to keep the music down and returns home.

Sometime later he is again awakened by loud music. He returns determined to speak with Alice directly, but is surprised to find his neighbor is actually Alice Cooper. Alice and Gene works things out amicable and Gene returns to his wife's side to enjoy slumber in peace and quiet.

The fact that the promos revealed the surprise cameo shows how hard they tried to put some spark into this dull series. Look for Alice to use the opportunity to poke fun at himself as he did in Wayne's World, and in a recent commercial for Marriott Residence Inns, where he asks a father on the street, in full makeup, "You don't want your kids growing up weird, do you?"
