Stark Raving

When I like a post, it is because I like it, not so that I can get likes in return. Never forget!

Reading a lot lately about how The Life of Riley and The Honeymooners were trailblazers for gritty blue collar depictions of life in America, along with middle American consumerism and other values now taken for granted as part of mid to late 20th century Americana.

But, it’s funny that they weren’t necessarily seen as innovative at the time they aired on television in the 1950s.

In fact, many reviews of the day saw them as more of a throwback to slapstick and its typically impoverished characters such as Laurel and Hardy and The Three Stooges.

But, the down and out poverty of Laurel and Hardy is different from the blue collar struggles of Ralph and Norton.

So, the innovation in these shows was not readily apparent until years later.
