Chill out, Barney
13 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wouldn't highly recommend this episode, especially since this series was starting to run out of gas by 1976, but it's certainly not the worst one either. The story revolves around Archie and Barney both entering their grandkids in a local newspaper contest for who has the most beautiful baby. Exciting, isn't it? Even though Barney made rude comments about baby Joey's bald head, and long eyelashes, I have to admit that the lines were funny, even though I feel he crossed the line teasing baby Joey right in front of Archie. The rest of the story in fairly routine and boring, and there's a painful scene with Gloria trying to act like Miss America, and it falls flat. Hank and Harry make a few cameos, and it's good seeing the both of them, but I'm running out of anything else nice to say here. I'll add the ending was a bit unexpected, but I'll let you judge that for yourself, and I won't spoil it right now.
