mama 2 me is?....
..Mama's Family is by far the best t.v show in re-runs right now..of course it's good clean fun...and it's hilarious...but lets face it .. the characters are perfect,Vinton plays a great Mama's boy...& Naomi could not have been better for Vint...the loose ,floozy type is the perfect contrast to any old fashioned grandmother,the fact that it's Mama is priceless.....Now any fan knows there are 2 different mama's family shows....pre Bubba,and post Bubba....watching Bubba's character develop is such a great transformation ..he not only becomes a good actor,but a great addition to the show...along with Iola..Borlyn,(I think that's right,no D at the end).. ...I have seen every episode at least 5-6 times,and i continue to tape the episodes off tbs in the AM..at this point I must have 25-30 tapes with every episode 3times over ,just in case they don't wise up and ..PUT THE SHOW ON DVD ALREADY!!!!..well I know I'm safe ..and if I wear out my tapes...I got plenty more.... ..there is just something about the show that makes my day start out right,2 episodes of Mama,and I'm good to go ,until tomorrow...and I love watching and thinking to myself ,what a great show that has stood the test of time,easily...how funny is it when Bubba wears the tee with his name iron-ed on the front in the 80's glitter ...and the true viewers know the episode where mama says.."no,at my house when the phone rings I run in circles yellin what'll I do ,what'll I do,what'll I do!!! GOTTA LOVE MAMA,and my mama t-shirt gets more compliments than any other tee I own...I have so much more to say but I'll quit now..as long as it airs I'll watch ..and when it 's pulled I'll probably watch more...thanks
