On this episode of PRAISING KANE we’re once again doubling up, starting with an episode of the eighth season of LAVERNE & SHIRLEY which is without Shirley, Lenny or Squiggy.. but we do have dog murder, Charles Fleischer and not much else, except Carol Kane as a streetwise fortune teller. We follow that with the 1981 film adaptation of Richard Foreman’s avant-garde play STRONG MEDICINE, steeped in the subject matter championed by his Ontological-Hysteric Theater. Hear us struggle with material we’re woefully out of step with! All that and the latest Carol Kane news. CHECK IT OUT.
Cinema Smorgasbord – Praising Kane – Taxi (Season 2, Episode 17) & The Greatest Man in the World (1981)
We’re DOUBLING UP on this episode of Praising Kane, which features a discussion on Carol Kane’s first episode of Taxi (and some very controversial statements from Liam on 80s sitcoms), but also Ralph Rosenblum’s 1981 TV adaptation of James Thurber’s satirical short story THE GREATEST MAN IN THE WORLD, featuring an introduction by Henry Fonda! Not only that, but we also fit in a discussion on the recent announcement of Carol Kane joining the cast of STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS! It’s almost TOO MUCH, yet here it is. Enjoy.
