I suppose nostalgia helps
Dawdle Or Dink!
I watched so much of this show. We need some Billy Quan.
This is a good example of a weak premise saved by a great performance.
Pat Cashman affected an entire generation of Seattlite speech mannerisms. I wake up in the dead of night, sweat on my brow, the fever of fear on my mind, with only one, baritone thing on my lips: "FOSTER FARMS CHICKEN."
5 stars for Dawdle or Dink! and the show that gave Bill Nye his start.
Man....I miss the day when we could make fun of South King County and it would still be relevant....
"I'm from Burien and I live by the three B's...Beer, Babes and Van Halen"
Actually, it's not even a Seattle thing per se....I remember re-broadcasts of this on some channel somewhere when I was a kid.
Of course the comedy was spotty. It had the charm of Summer Camp skits, you knew most of them would be terrible but the people on stage were having a ton of fun, and so you were too.
Comedy Central (or the Comedy Channel or HA!, whatever it was then) used to show reruns of Almost Live in the very late 80's/early 90's.
Yeah, I watched those religiously as a kid. It was Comedy Channel.
