Connie, this is really, really brilliant!!! I think this is one of the funniest ML episodes and more than that there are real sweet things about David, Maddie and their family!
As soon as I read “he looks a lot like Brad Pitt…because he is Brad Pitt!”, I remembered how much I missed your sense of humor... I laughed hard! And it goes on, goes on to the ending. You never betrayed my expectations!
The sight of David and Maddie exercising is fun, fun, fun to read, I know Maddie is better than David in that department, and those scenes vividly popped up in my head while reading! Great-great scenes!
And when he chased the suspect in towel, I spoke loud, “Oh, David…” However he is the one who could do this, yeah, it’s absolutely our David! ;D
Finally I feel that they are doing parenting wonderfully with the great help from Sunny and that their personalities are becoming deeper, which I felt from their conversations, their lines in every scene straightly got into my heart, remaining the particular characters that they are David and Maddie!!!
Thank you so much for the excellent job, Connie and VM team! I really appreciate it that you all keep giving us such a perfect episode!
Sorry its taken me so long to give you a review on this...I have been a huge slacker this past week.
Anyway - This episode was WONDERFUL! So classic Moonlighting! As usual I can actually see this episode being done!
I loved how you tackled that first day back at work for Maddie. As a Mom I know where she was coming from. I think I cried the entire trip to work the first day I dropped of my baby, and made several calls that day as well! Its such a hard thing to do, and you captured that so well.
The case was great too! From the outfit Maddie was wearing (or almost wearing) to the chase scene with the towel was brillant! That so could have been a real Moonlighting crazy chase scene! You really made me laugh with some of the scenes at the gym as well. (The step aerobics class and kick boxing were sooooo funny!) And you even fit in DYB! I was LOL!!!
The commercials were great too! I didnt have a thigh master, but I did dance to the oldies with Richard Simmons. The music choices were good too. (I now have Footloose in my head thank you very much!)
It was nice to see that Sunny is fitting in quite well too. The Epilogue was so great. Its so nice to see Maddie and David come home at the end of the day to a happy home...together. That last line was so perfect..."you've done kickboxing before, right? That wasn't your first go, was it?"
