Party like it’s 1973
With Jacobson and Kurtis together again, everyone from young to old gets to know what it feels like to have the first flurries of early-onset Alzheimer’s. (It would be especially great if The U’s ME-TV programmed Bob Newhart reruns right after.) Even if you don’t know what RJ Grunts was, you’ll be in the 1970s salad bar kind of mood, as the grinning one and the grumpy one offer Perspectives from decades past with their off-key Sunshine Boys routine. Could a comparison of a local pol to Nixon be far off?
Others that were mentioned a few times, amused us or seemed especially weird: “It’s the best thing on CBS since ‘Sweating Bullets.'”; “They’re still younger than all their viewers.”
