Too much L&S, not enough S&L
20 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

In this episode, Laverne and Shirley act all parts of a play written by Shirley. Needless to say, it's a real mess and the source of comedy. The two women switch between a multitude of Mother Goose characters and characters from fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, The Prince, and The Cow that Jumped Over the Moon.

This is the kind of humor that makes viewers either fans or detractors, depending upon one's taste.

Shirley is very earnest in her desire to present an entertaining show. Laverne is mostly clueless. At one point she literally chews the scenery.

Squiggy and Lenny are, comedically, the best part of the show. This episode could have used more of them.
