bleh, 2 love stories but Mr Belvedere!!
3 October 2015 | by (new jersey) – See all my reviews

One story is about a mom who wants to meet a younger guy she likes who turns out is her daughters ex fling. The daughter shows up. Drama ensues.

Other story is some chic with a Boston accent and a CPA boyfriend wants him to propose to her. The trick was have the guy think this other guy is hitting on her to make him jealous. but the other guy hurts his back and Roarke has to fill in. Boston accent lady falls for Rourke and he has to figure out how to get out of it. He uses trickery but CPA guy is too honest and unlike his BOston Accent girlfriend, he tells the truth and is honest. But shes not a jerk for doing the same thing.

What i liked about this episode was it was the first time i saw Mr Belvedere play the character Lawerence. from what i understand, tattoo demanded too much money in 83. are you kidding me? Tattoo sucked. He's likable, had some humor but was a bit character and got annoying and was hard to understand. So they got Mr Belvedere. I loved how quick witted he is, a bizarro Tattoo. His stares are the best, i think they gave him black makeup around the eyes to make his eyes look like they are bulging out when he gives that stare, or it could be my hi-def TV with 80's video. And him talking to Rourke, both with their elegant accents is awesome. i wish i could be elegant like that and use elegantly words and sound smart. it was ironic this episode had to have that chowder head lady butchering the English language.

There was a lot of Mr Rourke in the episode. I think chicks dig him so if your a chic, he has a scene where hes not in his white tux and is in a workout shirt thats like a vest. i can see how he wins over chicks like that Boston chic. So anyhow so so episode, i watched it, would again i guess. the mom was really hot, something about her teeth. i looked her up, shes dead. died at age 59. funny looking up dead people on fantasy island, i see quite few died at that age. odd.

Another episode coming up. Its got Belevedere again. yay.
