Can view it in NYC or LA -- Well worth it!
26 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would also like to see this on DVD. I saw it today at the Museum of Television and Radio in NYC. What a treat! I won't repeat what was written previously, but will just add to it.

The scene about "people, places and things" was for a song called "Life is Just a Situation Comedy," which interspersed stereotypically sitcom scenes between a couple of verses of song.

The Fiddler on the Roof song "Do You Love Me?" was sung by Dick and Mary as bride and groom figures on top of a wedding cake who bicker and make up, having lived 25 years on the freezer so, "For 25 years I've lived with you, fought with you, starved with you," actually works.

Another amusing bit was about a dozen injured skiers (dancers) all with large casts on their right legs and crutches performing synchronized dance steps, with an overhead Busby Berkeley-style use of the colored crutches and casts.

The DVD show outtake was from the show where Rob is hired and then fired as a poor actor, but still has to punch up the script. Dick wanted to play his firing with tears, showing his sadness to Laura, in a quasi-comical way, rather than stoically as aired. We got to see the crying version.

We also got to see the home and office sets from the DVD show in color, but they really didn't look just like the originals.

The food medley was really quite enjoyable. I hope to have a chance to see this again without having to go to NYC or LA to do so.
