Unusually, I had to pause tonight’s episode to explain the very first gag to our son. Tim buys a Barbara Woodhouse complete dog training kit, takes it into a men’s room, and exits the ladies room dressed as Barbara Woodhouse. That’s also the one and only gag in the final episode of The Goodies that I laughed at. I’d heard from the grapevine that “Animals” wasn’t particularly good. Overall, their sole series for LWT was actually a little better than I had thought it would be, but they did indeed end on a turkey.
I’m still on the fence about buying Network’s complete collection of the first eight series. Maybe when the price comes down a little more, we’ll have a little more Goodie goodness at the blog…?
