So fast forward fifty years, and along comes Malibu Country. It's just an updated version of these corny old shows, well kinda. It premiered last week, and I was instantly a fan. What's not to love, Reba as a woman done wrong, Lily Tomlin as her old hippie mom, it was a breath of fresh air after all of the crappy television shows these days.
And since its 2012, you don't have to ever miss an episode, you can watch it online, you can record it to your DVR, and your life will be enriched.
Okay, maybe not enriched, but it will make your children and grandchildren roll their eyes, and I bet it will give you the giggles.
