TV that's too Awful for TV
28 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

I glanced at Rodney Dangerfield's filmography/list of TV appearances, but didn't notice any mention of this curio. Why? "Where's Rodney" is one of the worst television sitcoms ever produced, right up there with "The Thorns," a short-lived series starring Tony Roberts, and the Krofft-produced "Pink Lady" (better not to ask). I seem to recall that it lasted for about one episode; I also (though I could be wrong) remember it airing slightly earlier than 1991 -- in about 1988 or 1989. In it, a strange teenage boy with a Dangerfield obsession (we're talking Mark David Chapman here, folks: Rodney posters all over his walls, a Rodney cutout in his room, the works) somehow develops a psychic/telekinetic ability to "summon" Rodney to his room, for assistance, whenever a Leave it to Beaver-like problem arises. In sum, this is a piece of pure trash, not even intelligent enough for beer guzzlers or the mentally-impaired; I'm sure Rodney would like to destroy all existing copies and erase it from the records. I'm embarrassed enough to admit that I watched the first episode, way back when. Rodney did 1000x better with his four or five feature vehicles -- particularly "Easy Money" and "Back to School." Thank God this never made it into a regular air slot.
