“High Anxiety” March 25, 1989

We’re spending a little more time on the lanai and revisiting the Golden Girls, this time with friends of the show Rob Heintz and Kelly Hardy. In this weeks installment we see ever-cheerful Rose, played by America's Nan Betty White, finally lose her cool. Sophia (Estelle Getty) drops some pills down the sink and Rose isn’t worried about her glaucoma - she’s coming down man - and she needs a fix! Turns out sweet, naive, dumb as a box of rocks Rose has been hooked on pain pills since the silent film era. An old back problem got her hepped up on goofballs and she’s been chasing the dragon ever since. The ladies of the lanai decide to help Rose kick her habit by staying up all night to make sure she doesn’t use for at least 24 hours - cause that’s how rehab works apparently. When Rose slips back into her old habits (called it), she finally checks herself into rehab. Meanwhile, Dorothy (Bea Arthur) and Sophia get wrangled into starring in a local pizzeria commercial, but Dorothy stinks at acting and the pizza just plain stinks so bad Ma can’t even act like it tastes good and they both get canned. Rose comes home from rehab but the girls wonder if they ever really knew the real Rose Nylund. Does the ditzy blonde routine transcend addiction? Will Rose bore everyone with stories about when she was “using?” Can Dorothy and Ma ever show their faces in an authentic Italian restaurant ever again? As always, the answers to all these questions and more are answered in this weeks episode of Very Special Television!

Home Improvement w/ Jeff Miller
“The Longest Day” April 2, 1996
We’re joined by Jeff Miller (Black Crystal Wolf Kids, Trip Testers) to watch the classic Home Improvement episode where the Taylors take a break from all the power-tool related humor to give American families what they really wanted in 1990’s ABC sitcoms - realism. That’s right - its the one where Randy (Jonathan Taylor Thomas) has a cancer scare - and the jokes come rolling in! We learn that it could either be a gland thing - or full on Big C. Since Randy is officially the favorite, youngest bro Mark (Taran Noah Smith) gets the day off and/or is hiding in the basement the entire episode. Did all child actors in the 90s come complete with three first names? Did this show start the trend of schlubby dad married to hot wife? Does Pete ever get to punch JTT in the face? We’ll cover all this and more - It’s Season 2, Episode 5 of Very Special Television!

"Wesley's Friend" January 31, 1986

We're joined by friend of the show Nick Perry for an episode handpicked from VSTV superfan Danny Meyers, we watched the classic Mr. Belvedere episode "Wesley's Friend." Wesley (Brice Beckham) gets bumped up from President Taft to Honest Abe Lincoln in the school President's Day Pageant when his titular friend Danny (Ian Fried) is taken out of school as he has been diagnosed with AIDS and its still 1986. Wesley gets some questionable information on what AIDS is and how you can catch it from his school yard chums and shuns poor Danny in his moment of need. The Owens'es attempt to inform Wes that he can still be friends with Danny and even wear his old Lincoln costume in the pageant. Wes has a change of heart and he and Danny start crossing items off the old bucket list (grim). Meanwhile Kevin (Rob Stone) is taking home economics in school for the "Easy A" but is failing miserably. We get the standard "gay panic" when he's caught sewing and... baking!! But don't worry - Kevin learns a valuable lesson about housework - or something. Will Wes be forever shunned for hanging with Danny? Will Kevin ever get that pesky meatloaf recipe right? Will Wes get glowing reviews for his performance as Lincoln? The answers to all these questions and more lie within this weeks episode of Very Special Television!

The Brady Bunch
"Bobby's Hero" (2 February, 1973)

Here's the story of a bunch of dudes watching old TV and making you laugh. Hopefully. We're joined by special guest Noah Green of the band The Pretty Flowers for episode 39 of Very Special Television and we reached way back into the vaults with the Brady Bunch episode Bobby's Hero. Young Bobby Brady (Mike Lookinland) has the gall to write a report on his hero Jesse James. Apparently, the school has something against custom motorcycles since the principal calls in Mr. & Mrs. Brady (Robert Reed, Florence Henderson) for a conference. The parents Brady are so concerned about Bobby's fascination with this long-dead old west outlaw that they stage an intervention of sorts and give Bobby a taste of his own medicine by watching a sanitized edited-for-TV movie about Jesse James. It backfires... badly. Only when grizzled prospector Jethroe Collins (Burt Mustin) comes a-callin' with a true story of Jesse James killing his paw with a shot to the back does Bobby change his tune. Will Bobby get another chance at writing his essay? Will Mr. Collins dig up the Bradys' backyard panning for gold and looking for tender vittles? Will Alice ever see sunlight again?

Susan Saint James and Jane Curtin star as the titular Kate and Allie, two best friend divorcees who combine their mom powers and move in together to raise their kids. In this weeks episode, Allie (Curtin) leaves her purse in a cab and has to make her way though the mean streets of 1980’s Manhattan with no money, no cell phone and no hopes of returning to civilized society. People turn their backs on her as one mishap after another leaves her smelling of booze and looking increasingly disheveled. Will Allie make her way home through this “Warriors”-esque NYC nightmare? Did all 80’s vagrants dress like 2018 tech-magnates? Will anyone get our multiple Geraldine Ferraro name drops? Stay tuned to Episode 7 of Season 2 - it’s Very Special Television!

Family Matters
"Stevil" (25 October, 1996)
Hey weirdos. It's finally here - the much talked about cross-over episode with Keep It Weird!! We're proud to welcome as special guests the hosts of Keep it Weird podcast Ashley Casseday and Lauren Ogle. In the spirit of keeping things weird we watched one of the weirdest, spooky-ooky kooky 22 minutes of TV ever produced - the Family Matters Halloween Spectacular known as "Stevil." As you may already know lovable nerd Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) was only intended as a 1 off character but he proved so popular that he upstaged the entire Winslow family. We've seen Steve Nutty Professor himself into Stefan Urquel, develop world altering technology like teleportation and cloning. But none of it comes close to tonight's tale of terror. Steve introduces us to a ventriloquist dummy made in his own image. The Winslows are appropriately horrified by the doll as well as Steve's sorry excuse for ventriloquism. A stray bolt of lightening imbues the doll with the gift of life but the doll has a lust for Winslow blood and is soon aptly named Stevil. The Winslows are taken out by Stevil with the real Steve helpless to stop him. Much like we were helpless to sit through this episode. Join us as Lauren and Ashley help us navigate the murky waters of talking dolls, psychic pagers and celebrity mediums.

You Say Potatoe, I Say Potato (Parts 1 & 2), September 21, 1992

It’s the summer of re-boot-mania and Very Special Television is getting in on the action. We spent some time with the very funny Kelly Hardy to watch 90’s workplace political satire, Murphy Brown. If you’re not familiar, Murphy Brown followed the news team at FYI, a fictional news program led by Murphy Brown (Candace Bergen) a tough-talking recovering alcoholic, take-no-prisoners investigative reporter. Now follow along with me here - Murphy (the character) becomes pregnant and decides to have the baby out of wedlock. This fictional story line caught the attention of then-Vice President Dan Quayle - who used it as a platform for conservative republicans to bash liberal television personalities who are ruining traditional family values. The show treated this as if Quayle was speaking directly to Brown the character, as she was a public figure in the world of the show. Listen with us as we try to navigate this Möbius Strip of an episode. Will Murphy ever land herself a husband? Will Dan Quayle ever win a 5th grade spelling bee? Will we watch the Murphy Brown reboot? As always the answers to all these questions and more lie within this weeks episode of Very Special Television!
