alarming amount of singing
19 March 2016 | by (new jersey) – See all my reviews

In what seems to be a Barrage of the Cozi channel playing season 7 love episodes, here is a refreshing change. It's not neccassarily a love episode as in a couple reuniting and all that crap, but its close. A all to familiar topic in season 7 is some type of entertainer who wants to reunite with some past friends/loves but something is keeping that from them. Case in point yet again, tonight Milton Berle is a guy who does stage performances and seems to recollect him self being awesome lately. A neat flashback Scooby Doo thing for 1984 shows him in his element in Las Vegas where no one likes his show and are not paying attention to it, but he recalls it as being great. As his two former vaudeville partners show up, you realize they stink too, but don't say it or admit it. Not sure which, this story was uninteresting and lost me as i found myself piddling on my smart phone during it.

So they reunite but they Hate Milton Berle and fall apart. Eventually they come together when Berle does his one man show that will suck, gives a speech about missing them like hte audience should care, and then the two show up and start dancing with him and doing some stupid song , like the audience should care but they are lapping up that vaudeville crap like morons. Tapping your feet and waving a hat around, singing some stupid song about how you're singing a song and waving your hat around, stupid. I recall Mr Rourke playing a grand piano and singing , it may have been for this story. It was so odd, bizarre and shocking , my mind can't process i saw it and i'd like to re watch it but erased it on my DVR.

So other story is a young brown haired, Tori Spelling whose head looks slightly big for her body but not as bad as it will get, who wants to meet God to ask why her parents died in a car crash. So she immediately does what i would do and asks Rourke "why did my parents die in a car crash". Hes like God is somewhere else and where you least expect and I'm like groaning cause its so unbiblical (I'm Christian, sorry) and then she stumbles across George Hamilton who has a nice Don Johnson stubble going on and is living in a cactus like plantation. so he agrees he is god and tells her to come back when he thinks of an answer cause it's like really hard to think of it (a little sign scruffy George Hamilton isn't God and is faking ). So she comes back, and this and that happens, i m not paying attention, and long story short, they end up back on the island together and a older man and a 10 year old is cool in the 80's from what i remember but not now so it looks creepy. So he tells her God wanted her parents cause he needs help with stuff up there (not biblical) and she feels good and they decided to dance and he plays with her face and then he sings to her. Its like my 5 year anniversary today. If you told me i'd be ending the night writing a Fantasy Island review of George Kennedy singing to a real young Tori Spelling with brown hair, id be like "probably". He called Tori Spelling "Funny Face" and then left her. I found that interesting.

So everyone was happy, the stupid group of entertainers left together. TOri Spelling left without George Kennedy who went on to look for his real daughter instead of live with her like she wanted, and Mr Beleveder gave his nice British like wave to all leaving.
