A Brief Sketch
13 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

In one brief sketch in Love, American Style, two young men are pushing a big brass bed in the middle of a city street and one says to the other, "Now when we meet the girls, just act natural". This never ceases to crack me up. I'm old enough to have seen the original show and I loved it and never missed an episode and I don't remember any of the other skits but this one stuck in my head. I just wish it could be shown again nowadays. The brass bed was featured in several episodes and many of the sketches could have resulted in spin-offs. Nowadays comedies are popular and I wish I could suggest to TV producers that they consider reviving this one.
