This is the entire "Turkeys Away!" episode of WKRP in Cincinnati. It is a must see this time of year. In the past I have only posted a short clip, but came across this a few days ago.
Unfortunately, readers from outside North America won't be able to view this. If you are not in North America, head on over to my brother's place, where you can view a clip with the best parts of the show.
Stephen Fry, the British actor and television host, has a current TV series in which he travels throughout the United States. The series is described as such:
The brilliant, lovely, witty, kind, warm-hearted and delicious Stephen Fry drives through America with his black English taxicab visiting every state fighting the ignorance and misconceptions outsiders might have about The United States Of America. To really get to know "the Americans", as it were, we have to explore the people, culture, landscapes and activities state by state, for there are some great differences.
In this episode, he visits Kentucky. Central Kentucky specifically.
The young man who he interviews, Griffin Van Meter, is an acquaintance of ours. We never knew he had a tattoo, though.
Check out the part where Fry visits the Woodford Reserve Distillery. It's a hoot.
I really wish this series would be shown on BBC America. All we ever see there anymore is crappy reality programming for the most part.
Clicking the image will take you to its Flickr page. You can see a larger version there.
Actually, we are on a road to somewhere. I'm just not sure where. That's part of the adventure that is life.
The photo was taken of the road where Ali's oldest brother lives with his family. I've taken many a photo of that road, but this is the first time I have shot it in winter. It has never looked more beautiful.
We will be taking the kids to the Cincinnati airport this afternoon to put them on their flight home. They have been with us for two weeks, and we have crammed a lot of activity into that time. But the time still flew by.
Alison was asked to review the new Sylvester Stallone film, Rocky Balboa, for a local magazine.
Since it was a rainy and dreary day, and we didn't have anything else in mind to do, we decided to go see it. We checked where it was playing, and when, and decided to catch an early matinée. We ate last night's leftovers for our lunch, bundled up against the cold rain, and headed to the theater.
I have to admit that I have never actually seen any of the previous five Rocky films from beginning to end. Not even the original, although I have seen most of it through several viewings when it has been on cable. So I knew the back story of the main characters.
The new film was much better than either of us expected. Stallone was excellent as the aged, retired champion. A certain suspension of one's disbelief was required to accept the premise of this tale, but it wasn't hard to do.
Like the other Rocky films, it presents a story of the triumph of the human spirit against seemingly insurmountable odds. It's a feel good movie. And that was okay with me.
We saw this preview while waiting for SoAP to start last Saturday night. We were all rolling on the floor laughing. According to IMDB, the film was written by three of the creators and stars of Comedy Central's series Reno 911.
That's enough to recommend it to me.
So who wants to go see it with us when it is released in November?
