Who did Kill Cock-a-Doodle Dooley?
19 August 2006 | by a_new_day_at_midnightSee all my reviews

It is wonderful to see all the American talent of the time and how some of them actually got their big breaks and the stars they have become now. The series was actually captured in a episode when Hazel wife of Major Bellamy is talking to her father in law Richard Bellamy. They both agree that there was two families living in the same house the Bellamy's and the family that lives downstairs, Hudson the father, Mrs Bridges the mother, Edward the son, Daisy his wife, Rose the eldest daughter and Ruby the youngest.

An outstanding example of American wit. This perfectly crafted episode shows off the neo-classical movement of the American guild of actors and actors with outstanding momentum. The most notable performance came from the subtle yet obvious portrayal of the mafia gang the "cock-a-doodle's" and his struggles with psoriasis and incontinence. I recommend this to any fan of "Burke's Law". However i only give this episode 9 stars because i felt that the portrayal of English people to be offencive.

oh and BTW I Killed Cock-a-Doodle Dooley!!! (hehe)
