3rd Rock From The Sun – Cybill – Roseanne – Jack & Jeremy’s Real Lives – tape 2182

First, on Sky, an episode of 3rd Rock from the Sun. This episode is Lonely Dick and features a guest appearance from Phil Hartman.

Next, Cybill, Local Hero which opens with Cybill in an old TV show called Island Cop which only ran for 6 episodes, but is the most popular show in a particular Eastern European country.

There’s an early appearance (his earliest credit according to iMDb) from an incredibly young Jim Rash (the principal from Community) as a production assistant who has to give Cybill some bad news.

Next, Roseanne. Darlene’s wedding is approaching. Jackie goes ballroom dancing, with teacher Tony Curtis.

At the end, they pastiche Some Like It Hot.

Finally on this Friday Night, Jack and Jeremy’s Real Lives, with an episode about Aristocrats.

Brenda Gilooly plays a model, as Jack is a photographer. Supposedly. “You do have film in the camera, don’t you?” “I should hope so, it’s brand new.”

There’s a scene where Jeremy is running after a knife thrower, and he’s hit by a car – for the stunt, the stuntman is black. The programme is filled with throwaway shots and jokes like this.

Lee Cornes once again appears, as a detective.

Helen Lederer as well.

Plus Steven Frost

Next, back to 3rd Rock From The Sun and an episode called Body & Soul Dick. John Mahoney plays a horrible colleague of Dick’s who dies at a party in his honour, so Dick has to give the Eulogy. That makes the third reluctant Eulogy episode in recent weeks, and the second featuring John Mahoney.

After this episode, there’s a short chunk of Jimmy’s, before recording switches to Channel 4.

Then, another Cybill. Her neighbour has started stealing stuff from her garden.

Maryann gets Ira to help her bury her ex’s Harmon Kardon stereo.

Next, it’s Roseanne and the wedding day is here.

There’s a scene just before the wedding, where Dan talks to Darlene, and offers her his nest-egg of savings bonds, and his dad’s coin collection. It made me cry, mostly from John Goodman’s performance. He’s so good I would watch him in anything. I’ve loved him ever since Raising Arizona.

Weirdly, although Lecy Goranson is credited in the main titles as playing Becky, in this episode she’s played by Sarah Chalke.

There’s a shock at the end, as Dan has a heart attack.

After this, another of Jack & Jeremy’s Real Lives. This week they are writers.

Steve Frost (again) plays a character who’s like a prototype of Mark Heap’s Brian from Spaced. An angry artist who does much of his painting naked.

And yet another character for series regular Helen Lederer

After this, the tape ends.
