Tread Perilously – ‘Love & War: I Love a Parade’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Love & War‘s “I Love a Parade”

Tread Perilously‘s Ampersand Month continues with an episode of the obscure sitcom Love & War called “I Love a Parade.”

The gang manages to get a fairly decent spot for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, even if they all forgot to buy coffee with their donuts. The festivities take a turn when a random woman asks Jack to hoist her son up on his shoulders so he can see the floats. She soon disappears, leaving the others to search for her. Meanwhile, Dana and Jack discuss the best course of action. Will they end up raising the child as their own, or will a Thanksgiving miracle save the day?

Erik and Justin get lost in the woods right quick. The show’s supporting cast, which includes Joanna Gleason, Charles Robinson, and Suzie Plakson, gets high marks. Leads Annie Potts and Jay Thomas end up not as lauded, although both get discussed a great deal. Potts proves to be a Tread Perilously sweetheart while Thomas … well, Thomas is another matter all together. Justin eulogizes the sitcom as a format while Erik suggests Love & War represents its lowest ebb. They try to re-conceive the show for Plakson and Michael Nouri (who also appears in the episode) and find a better use for the rest of the cast.
