Opening credits and the show’s premise:
On February 28 dear Moe Lane advised his readers to have a couple of glasses of wine before perusing the site, “Peter Scolari, Unsung Genius.” To enhance the WTF factor, he says.
Let me make one thing perfectly clear, once and for all. Peter Scolari RULES.
What do you mean, Peter who?
One of Peter Scolari’s early roles was in the TV sitcom, “Bosom Buddies,” with Tom whatshisname — um, Hanks. The show also featured Wendie Jo Sperber and Holland Taylor (now the mother in “Two and a Half Men”).
So “Peter Scolari, unsung genius,” imagines him in the roles that Tom Hanks later played.
The reason I have a soft spot in my heart for Peter Scolari is his role as Michael on the second “Bob Newhart Show,” thanks to his devotion to his girlfriend, Stephanie, played by Julia Duffy. I just loved how much Michael loved Stephanie and because Michael is fictional, while Peter Scolari is real, I adore Peter Scolari.
If you are wondering what brought this up when many days have passed since Moe’s post, it was Hot Air linking a video tonight of Tom Hanks extolling virtues of Barack Obama, that, um, in my opinion are in reality features of his sociopathy, since the only pleasure sociopaths really feel comes from power and the ability to make people jump.
I would love to see Peter Scolari in more roles and I hope to goodness he is not so gullible as Tom Hanks.
