I listened to Hugh Hewitt's radio show yesterday as I drove home from work, and I caught the third hour with special Wednesday guest, Emmett of the Unblinking Eye, doing his Friday movie review hour. The Top Ten List was movies about, or having something to do with, Thanksgiving.
In the course of the call-in debate over which movies should or should not have been on the List, Hugh and Emmett expressed surprise that nobody had called in to violate The Rule (thou shalt not mention TV movies or TV shows) by mentioning the classic WKRP Thanksgiving episode.
Hugh asked the interns at the show--Austin the Occasional Intern and Moses My (Hugh's) Servant--if they'd ever heard of the old sitcom, WKRP In Cincinnati. They hadn't. So Hugh and Emmett described the Hindenburg-like story line and declared that episode as the best moment in sitcom history. I have to agree with them.
This morning, I woke up earlier than I expected, so I checked the news and looked at some blogs to see if there were any good Thanksgiving messages. At Hugh's blog, he had this post:
The Joy of YouTube
Begin your T-Day with a little WKRP.
Click on the link, and enjoy the show. I'll show it to my kids later, when they're up.
Now, it's time to get started on the stuffing... Happy Thanksgiving!
