On the 99th, the third life of two classic sitcoms started pretty well for Norman Lear, with the 99-year-old national treasure sitting down with executive producer Jimmy Kimmel. When Kimmel mentioned that World War II Vet would be on the air on Pearl Harbor Day, Lear decided to drop the F-bomb, which dropped.
Lisa Welchel sang the familiar “Facts of Life” theme in her old Blair Warner uniform. And Mindy Cohn and Kim Fields joined Welchel on stage to present the episode (Nancy McKean did not appear or, for some reason not stated). The newly created episode is “Children Can Be Cruel” from the show’s third season. The girls prepare for a box dinner auction hosted by Mrs Garrett (Ann Daoud). Blair (Jennifer Aniston) hopes to get Dink Lockwood (Will Arnett) ‘s dream of winning their French box, Joe (Catherine Hahn) makes her lunchbox. As attractive as possible, Tuti (Gabrielle Union) is there to make her usual 12-year-old lunchbox. Marginal note.
Natalie (Alison Tolman) falls in love with quarterback Tim Holyfield (Jason Bateman).
When Blair reveals to Tim on what Natalie anonymously wrote about him in the helmet book, Natalie responds by telling Carl “Rocky” Price (John Stewart), the hat lover Tim and Dink make fun of and who owns Blair’s box. When Carl offers Dink and Blair cringes, Mrs G. has to remind all the girls that it hurts him more than anyone to make fun of a “good boy” like Carl and use him like Natalie.
The remade episode of Diff’rent Strokes is Season 1 of Willis Privacy. Todd Bridges introduces the segment, and Sean Stockman and Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men sing the theme song. As a result, Willis (Damon Wayans) becomes increasingly angry. With Arnold (Kevin Hart) for bothering him and not giving him space. Mr Drummond (John Lithgow) and Mrs Gee (Dowd) try to reconcile between the two. But things get worse when Arnold’s antics destroy the photos Willis is developing for a project he and his friend Vernon (Snoop) don’t. German Mastiff).
Willis and Arnold tries to split their room in two. Willis decides to stay at Vernon’s apartment in Haarlem, not knowing if he will return. Arnold was so angry that he went out with his brother that he asked God for help.
We were very sceptical of the cast of this particular film, as the actors in Eastland Girls and Jackson Brothers are almost as old as the surviving actors who played the roles. If you choose middle-aged adults, why not let them play the part? But Kimmel really made a brilliant move and chose the show the way she did, and not just because of the number of stars she put into the show.
With this casting, Kimmel essentially deters viewers from comparing actors to role originators:
That anchors the audience in the first two iterations of this particular film. There’s no possibly way to compare how a 49-year-old like Union Tuti compares to Fields when she was 13. It also allows the actors to interpret the role in any way that suits them, rather than impress the original appearance.
Oddly enough, the guys overtook the women in the Facts of Life episode. Mainly since everyone except Khan played their part with relative honesty. Union turned Tuti into a world-tired guy in his forties, apart from sweatpants. Khan came up with an idea with Joe and drove him almost crazy instead of being rude and rebellious. But the entire of the episode was stolen by Arnett, Bateman, and most importantly. Stewart went out of action after the hit film Death To Smoochy nearly 20 years ago. He’s funny like the humble but respectful and intelligent Carl. And when he’s being insulted by everyone, we fall into an “oooh” as he walks off the screen sadly.
The Diff’rent Strokes episode is really more successful because Hart and Wayans had split. And just like in the original series, physical moments always mask the actual jokes; Who doesn’t laugh when Lithgow picks Hart, 42, and carries him into the kitchen. Or sees Hart is sitting on Lithgow’s lap? It made us to forget how simple the original episode actually is. How well the story ended, and that Kimberly wasn’t even in it.
The Facts of Life / Diff’rent Strokes succeed because they don’t even remember the original episode. Everyone loves to play the iconic role they are given, and that’s obvious. An old national treasure that sits next to co-executive producer Jimmy Kimmel. When Kimmel mentioned that World War II Vet would be on the air on Pearl Harbor Day, Lear decided to drop the F-bomb, which dropped.
