HYPNOTIC BRIDGE traversal to Bob James flute/vibraphone theme started this proto-Cheers ensemblecom. DANNY DE VITO was bastardish boss Louie de Palma, JUDD HIRSCH and MARILU HENNER were the “normal” leads. TONY DANZA was thick ex-boxer, CHRISTOPHER “DOC” LLOYD was spaced-out freak Jim Ignatowski and, of course, ANDY KAUFMAN as Latka Gravas. Seminal, before that word stopped being, well, seminal. What happens when it rains? Monetary gains.
