Well, whaddaya know, I was right! This week's special guest star is at the door, and right before the opening credits. It's the Colonel, a.k.a. Eric's father. That's rather unfortunate.
If you were hoping for a new and improved theme song, you'll be sadly disappointed, I'm afraid. It's still the same old stuff about their shiny faces, or Matt's greasy hair smiling down at you, or whatever they're wailing about. There is a delightful shot of Lucy's all-pleather outfit, though.
Oh, my. A bluesy rock song plays while Eric performs some kind of striptease-like dance while cleaning up the kitchen, though technically no clothing is shed. It doesn't matter, I'm still blind now. It's not like I find Stephen Collins repulsive or anything. I know someone who ran into him at LAX and said that he was really gracious and charming. But the thought of creepy stalker RevCam shimmying his way through his kitchen -- uh-oh, there goes lunch. There is a total close-up shot of him feeling up his ass, which is mostly covered by his shirt. Maybe during sweeps month the shirt will come off! Or maybe the WB could do some sort of fundraising stunt where, if they receive their pledge goal amount, the writers will promise never, ever to show any cast members bumping or grinding, ever again. Ever. SuperMom rolls her eyes and turns off RevCam's music. Darn! And just when it looked like he may have been about to fellate a broomstick. The CamRents discuss the Colonel's visit, and Annie claims it won't be so bad. Ho-ho, wouldn't it be absolutely hilarious if that were some ironic foreshadowing? A joke is made about Julie and Hank escaping to Chicago to avoid the Colonel. This episode's budget must be really small if they can't afford Ed Begley. SuperMom leaves, but not before making a big show out of moving the broom out of RevCam's reach; he goes after it anyway. We never get to see any hot man-on-broom action, though, because after all, this program is rated G. By the way, that doesn't stand for "good."
