I recorded an interview today where I ended up talking a lot about You Look Nice Today, and, yeah, it got me feeling nostalgic. So, I grabbed a couple random old episodes I remember liking and hopped in.
For whatever reason, I put on “Nary a Dude,” and when I got to this section 10 or so minutes in, it dawned on me that this was, in retrospect, probably where the show started to get really good and wonderfully weird.
Not long after this episode, Sandy started confidently dropping in music and SFX in a way that produced Golden Age classics like “Sacks-Minnelli Disease,” and, yeah, that’s arguably where the show kinda became…the show.
But, as I listen back to us diagnosing Scott’s recent inability to feel his balls, I think you can hear where the show started to take a big turn.
I eat some nuts, Adam sings a theme song, Scott confronts his boniness, and we all wonder aloud whether Estelle Getty might have ever played a wandering barber’s testicles.
