Exploring the art of storytelling.
Ok, I must admit, I did get teary-eyed at the end of “The Darryl Dawkins Dance.” Never in a million years would I have expected to cry from this sitcom. But Adam and his grandfather have such a great relationship. And this just shows how much Adam F. Goldberg’s (creator) grandfather still means to him.
Adam has a big imagination. I was impressed with the elaborate costumes they used to make the transformers. Even the car was decked out.
The production team perfectly casted miniature Bev and Murray. Of course, James Garlin (who plays mini Murray) is Jeff Garlin’s (who plays Murray) son in real life, so he really fit the part. Allie Grant (who plays Evy) replicated Bev’s annunciation, facial expressions, and mannerisms. It was frightening (even Bev thought so at the end).
Did anyone else think that Evy was a bit too extreme? I would never expect a teenage girl to say, “Is that your hubby? What a catch!” I know she is a miniature version of Bev, but that was a bit overboard. She needed to be a teenage copy of Beverly, not a current copy.
