Bad Reception: Making the Best of Bad TV

EP11 - Top of the Heap

May 15, 2018

We’re back with the third installment of “Friends Before Friends.” This time we watched Matt LeBlanc’s short-lived Married… with Children spinoff, Top of the Heap. LeBlanc plays a young, handsome, dimwitted Italian-American man named Joey… er… I mean “Vinnie.” Basically it’s the same low-brow shenanigans as MWC but with more dancing! Is it a heap of smelly garbage, or cream of the crap? Josh makes his triumphant return to the show and we talk celebrity encounters, the sexual politics of Peg Bundy, and get remarkably uncomfortable about the character Moana, played by teenaged Joey Lauren Adams. Also stay tuned at the end as we have a long list of corrections from this episode!
