I gave it a 9 b/c I have really intense memories of this episode. When ML was first aired in Germany I missed the first 2 seasons b/c we didn´t even have cable TV on that time yet. One of the first episodes I saw was this one and I just thought "Gosh I have to watch the whole series this is great". Lucky me the Austrian channel started showing ML so I could watch the episodes I had missed a few weeks later thanks to cable TV.
Another episode with a note of 9. I was given a note of 10. I like this episode very munch. Very funny,with the bloopers,Rona Barret vising Blue Moon,and don't forgetting the last part,when Rona asks to David,what happend to his hair. lmao,so funny,ihihih! And his face,lol! ;D I simply love it.
I'm going to give this episode an 8.5. Now at the time I saw it in the 80's I would have given it a 2 probably, because I was so fed up then with the reruns only to be fed a clip show. Grrrr! But upon rewatching years later on DVD where reruns are a non-issue, I realize that this episode is genius. It is a really great send-up of the craziness that surrounded the show at the time and a fun walk down memory lane. And the bloopers rock! I might have given it a 9 or even 10 upon rewatching, but I still remember that they had the audacity to fulfill their new episode promise with a Bert and Agnes episode, so it can never get a 9 or 10 for me no matter how many years go by!
One of the nice things about being too young to have watched Moonlighting during its original broadcast run is that the frustration that came with being a fan at that time and place is merely something I read about. Here though I get an inside peek at the scrambling to keep this beast of a show afloat, moving onward in the face of insanity while keeping the fans from completely revolting in the process. Only this show would manage to make lemonade out of this kind of lemons with such inventive, stylish results. Not only is it a fun substitute for a fresh episode but it's a watchable CLIP SHOW. They managed to make a clip show clever and worth our time. Too bad that we all know the unfortunate turmoil that gave way to such drastic measures. Kind of spoils the fun.
