My Guilty Pleasure

I just received my copy in the mail today. Got it off ebay. If you don't remember the original TV series that inspired the Naked Gun movies, you're not alone. There were only six episodes made. The show was cancelled after just four airing -- mostly because you had to pay attention to the show to understand the jokes or know what was going on. I saw them all and videotaped them. I've since lost the VHS cassette, but finally will get to watch the DVD. Tomorrow.

Nothing spiritual. Nothing "godly". Just stupid jokes and belly laughs. And I love it.

I remember watching "Airplane!" in the theatre for the first time. My best friend and I drove way too fast to get there in time for the opening. Actually we were about 90 seconds late. But we both walked out of the theatre with abdominal pain from laughing so hard.

Sometimes an escape from reality really takes the stress away, don't you think?

Oh Rev, funny I should read about this today. I just posted on my blog my current addiction to The Sopranos. :) I didn't buy all five seasons, thank goodness. I'm just watching.

At least you didn't have to pay out a lot of money for yours, being that there are only six episodes!

$11 plus shipping and handling...

If it would have been expensive, my wife may have nixed the deal... ;)

Not a bad price for some laughs!
