The roomie and I have a bit of a love affair with Home Improvement. We’re mad that Nick@Nite feels compelled to air Family Matters at 11 and HI at 12. We’re never up that late!
So obviously, when we woke up Monday morning and turned the TV on, we were thrilled to be reminded that TBS shows a 2-hour block of the show EVERY weekday.
We’d just gotten through watching the episode where Tim overwaxes the dance floor for Randy’s birthday party and his annoying little crush Michelle sprains her ankle (side note, we BOTE wanted to be Michelle growing up. Stupid Taylor boys only liking blondes….) and were slightly annoyed to see that the next episode was the one where Al is named one of the most eligible bachelors. This is a kind of completely unrealistic scenario not to mention overplayed by a lot of the “family friendly” sitcoms of it’s day (does everyone else remember that Danny Tanner too, was an eligible bachelor?).
So the women in the audience start asking questions about Al and obsessing about his French doors (not a euphemism) until Tim yells at them.
Then, all of a sudden, a voice rings out from the crowd: What kind of windows does Al like?
The girl who said it looked vaguely familiar. In fact, I said to the roomie, she looks a little like Lucy Liu.
Fast forward 12 minutes to the credits (or don’t if you totally cheated and clicked on that link, which, okay, fine, isn’t really cheating b/c I put it there): it IS Lucy Liu.
Good for you LL. Before you were kicking ass in Kill Bill and Charlie’s Angels you were kicking it with the Tool Man (no, not that kind of tool).
