Flat Bike Tires Are Tacky
18 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The guest cast on this show is one guy who heads the bike club. With the regular cast, that is all we need. The episode starts with the Hubbards & the Buells on the sofa watching television. They turn on a news cast that says that Americans are getting "too fat and out of shape by sitting in front of the television every night. Most Americans can't climb a set of stairs without being winded," says the newscast.

This gets Herb & Roger upset when Eve challenges them to run up and down the Hubbards stairs. Both of them do it, but both are gassed after doing it. Eve then says it is time for them to get an exercise program. Eve does a funny routine putting Kay through the paces and then their newly wed kids come over and tell them to join the bicycle club with them and ride bikes on week-ends. To try and get close and be nosy with their kids, Kay & Eve agree.

Then the complications set in and before you know it, the in laws are lost and stranded in the Mojave Desert on a bike club trip. Overall this episode is OK with Eve Arden getting the best script but all of them doing OK. Even though there are bicycles in the show, there is not really as much physical comedy in this one as in some of the other episodes.
