So, it IS Robyn singing on this episode? Is it also her singing on key in Keith's mind? Very interesting!

Sorry I'm late this week.
Real life family and all.
But let's get into the second season here.
Fun episode....

The idea that the Air Force guys don't hear Dora because she is so pretty does reminde me of Beatlemania and how it was said that at the Beatles concerts the audience was so loud you couldn't hear them play. Of course, we all know that the Beatles had talent, but let's be honest they didn't have to play just stand there. I agree it's funny and I think points this out when Chris just throws up his drumsticks and smiles.
Anyone notice though that the last shot of the concert is Keith standing there grinning like this was all his solution too, even though it was Reuben who said to introduce her and Keith was shocked that Shirley was going through with it?

Sorry that I've been MIA. I'm back now, as long as life stops getting in the way. :-)

I really enjoyed this episode because I remember being truly surprised by the twist at the end. I was so excited about the show being back with new episodes, and it answered the question (more or less) that I had had all summer about the new blond kid on the cover of Sound Magazine.

The fact that poor Dora escaped humiliation at the end thanks to all of the soldiers drowning out her dreadful voice was a hilarious twist! Even my siblings (who loved to ridicule my favorite show) had to admit it was pretty darn funny!

It's funny to think back now that Jack Burns was on this episode and then the very next night, he was introduced as a regular character on The Partridge Family spinoff, Getting Together. I don't know about you, but those are the sorts of things I was completely oblivious to back then.

Finally, it was great to see the family sing their new hit song on the season premiere. We didn't have to wait for weeks on end the way we did for I Think I Love You in season one. Smile

I know this is a late posting since we have moved past this episode, however, our Municpal Opera performed the Music Man this past week and of course, then my hubby and I had to get out our DVD of it with the lovely Shirley Jones and it struck me how the ending of this episode was reminiscent of the ending of Music Man in that at the very end the band comes out and while Harold Hill hasn't taught them a single note, they try to play and mix horribly, but the parents are so excited to see there kids in uniform and on the stage that they are happy and clap excitedly anyway.
I guess this could be called the "Dora Effect" Laughing

Finally getting caught up...

I know this is so late, but I did enjoy this episode. A great way tp start a new season and you can see how comfortable the family is together. The formula is set and while they are not on the road as much, it is still fun to see them go through each situation and explore that family dynamic as only they could do. Keith's obliviousness to Dora's talent (or lack thereof) is very charming and Shirley's failure to actually tell Jack Burns' character the truth about his daughter was delightful. "I Woke Up InLove This Morning" is a great song. Good episode of ageat show!

My favorite scene, Shirley trying to explain the facts of life to Keith. Great episode, one of my favorites from the second season.


Mine too. David's expression is exquisite when it changes from puzzled to understanding when she starts explaining. It looks like he's trying really hard not to laugh.
