The Mothers-in-Law: The Hombre Who Came to Dinner: Part 2 continues the action from the week before. It’s a first season episode that features the series’ executive producer, Desi Arnaz. What is super fun is that Desi Arnaz Jr. also guest stars.
In fact, I love the billing. At the end end of the show, in the closing credits, it actually says “Two Desi Arnaz’s” which I think is adorable. I get the feeling that Desi Jr. really loved working with his dad here. There is a scene where he’s playing drums while Desi Sr. is singing and dancing with some gals, and, well, I just think the expression on Desi Jr.’s face is precious.
I love Desi Jr.’s opening scene. His character of Tommy shows up and ends up playing the pots in Eve Hubbard’s kitchen to show that he’s a drummer. It’s really a great bit that entertains well.
The bulk of the story is Raphael del Gado (Desi Sr.) doing a benefit in Mexico City in which the Hubbards, Buells, and the newlyweds perform at. It is a lot of fun and really entertains.
I enjoyed the two parter which let the entertainers show off their variety skills, and I’m glad the two Desi Arnaz’s preformed together.
