Michael wants a network job
18 May 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Michael gets a interview for a job with a big network.

A funny episode for Michael who wants be able to use buzz words and suck up to network honchos. However, he is surprised to find that the network guy wants quality sophisticated programs and not the the exploitative schlock Michael likes. Also going on in this episode is George finding a rock formation he thinks looks like a duck but no one in the town agrees with him. Funniest scene is when Dick tries to explain about quality TV in the 1970s and mentions All In The Family, MASH, Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Burnett. Michael then says "What about that one about the shrink who stutters?"
