Gleason and the Gang at Their Finest
5 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

If I could give something an eleven, this would be it. When the Kramdens arrive in London on their around the world tour, they find themselves having attained some celebrity. So, naturally, the people at the Flakey Wakey's company want them to participate in a commercial. Of course, Ralph can't just do this. He must be in charge. He writes and directs. The script is absolutely awful (and awfully funny). He takes on all the important stuff, but when it comes to actually performing, he is overcome with monumental stage fright The actual commercial knocked me off my chair. Gleason is amazing when he is overcome with fear. He has those big eyes and that vacuous look, as if there were no one else with him on stage. This, to me, is the best of all the episodes.
