Rodney Dangerfield was one of the most beloved standup comedians in history, a master jokester whose self-deprecating persona was practically tailor-made for sitcoms. But when the time came to make one, for some reason it was all about teenaged Rodney Dangerfield fan who had the power to summon (and teleport) Dangerfield from wherever he happened to be at the moment, to give him relationship advice.
Believe it or not, with a premise like that, WHERE'S RODNEY never made it past the pilot episode. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through this baffling episode of television and suss out how it fits into Rodney Dangerfield's legendary career and why nothing about it works, except for a single, solitary moment of perfection.
