DVD of the Day #319 - Parker Lewis Can’t Lose: The Complete First Season

God, I have been waiting for this to come out on DVD for years. It’s hard to believe this show is twenty years old. Well, not if you just go by clothing and hairdos, but I was shocked that it’s aged exceptionally well.

There’s so much I love about this show. Whether it’s the catchy theme music, the opening little skit for the first minute of the show that concludes with the end credits or the overall plot with witty dialogue, memorable characters and good old surreal satire and fun.

For those unaware, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose is actually based on Ferris Beullar’s Day off, but they lost the rights to the show right before filming, so they had to make a few changes. The actual eventual Ferris Beullar show was fucking awful and lasted only half a season, while this became one of Fox’s biggest hits for three straight years. It’s actually superior to the original film and I happen to love that, so that’s saying something.

What makes this show so awesome are all the characters. Parker with his horrible taste in shirts but crazy schemes, Mikey the bad boy sidekick, Jerry the nerd sidekick to the sidekick, Grace Musso the awesomely evil principal (who we learn is the sister of “The Beaver”!), Frank, the goth military psycho that works for Ms. Musso, Shelly the evil little sister of Parker and of course, the Kube. Man, I love Kubiak.

Each episode is a lot of fun and generally involved Parker hatching a wacky plan or trying to get out of trouble. It’s not at all like your generic sitcom, and it’s amazing how ahead of it’s time it was. This definitely wasn’t what you would expect to have seen out of 1990 when Full House and Family Matters was the general crap du jour.

Simple put, PLCL is awesome and you need to see it.

Is It Worth Keeping? Yes
