Joey Lawrence was always an adorable affable character who, well, let’s admit it, didn’t have that much sense and was “Whooa!” not quite Yale material shall we say? But the days of Blossom are over, and ABC Family seems to have their finger on the pulse of contemporary America, and they wrap it all up in the new series Melissa & Joey.
Well, it’s not exactly new, considering 7 episodes have already aired, but I haven’t checked it out until now on Hulu, trolling for new shows I may have missed. Glad I found it. While the new season and new series premieres are filling the evening airwaves these days — and my Hulu queue full nearly daily — seems I cannot get enough.
While complete a great family show, ABC Family goes a little further, allowing the occasional use of words like freaking, pissed, ass, and more. Plus, the sexual innuendos and stark talk like referring to sex tapes, being ‘bent over’ and just refreshing reality. The combination of Joey Lawrence (who is looking GOOD) with Melissa Joan Hart, make a very funny duo.
Fresh and Witty
Here’s a great line: “I bet you had a TV. A guy like you probably had a 60″ 1080P HD LCD, L.E.D. Man-o-vision?” “52 inches — which is plenty,” retorts Joey. “The fact of the matter is you now have zero inches.” “That is by choice, okay? She’s going to be spending a lot of time at home and she thought — we thought — it would be best if she took the tv.” “Like I said, ZERO inches.”
It’s fresh, smart and funny. Check out Melissa & Joey on Hulu.
