1 :01x01 - Being a Winner

Sep/09/1983
Tonight's winners are a female cop, a young man of marginal intelligence and a couple on the lam from bill collectors.

The cop (Ilene Graff) finds that her $2 45 million winnings endanger her partner's life when their work on the street is disrupted by her celebrity status.

In the second story, Christopher McDonald offers a nice performance as a young innocent whose relatives try to steal his winnings. This one's written to tug at your heart.

Hence Taylor and Allen Goorwitz chew the scenery as they attempt to be hilarious in the story designed for humor. Facing overdue bills and repossession, they assume that a man representing the IRS means a federal prison sentence and they go to great lengths to escape him.
This story stares one of Hollywood's funniest character men, Allen Goorwitz, as a down-on-his-luck plumbing salesman and the always-hysterical Renee Taylor as his wife. The segment is played straight but gets a lot of laughs, an approach that could ensure success for this already likeable series. (l hour, 30 minutes)
