What I’m Watching: There’s Johnny

There’s Johnny: Season 1, Episode 5 “The Drop” (B-)

This was hardly the most serious episode this show has produced thus far, and that’s strange since it did deal with a relatively serious concept: Johnny getting a stalker. This was also the first time that we really saw Johnny out and about and not just in his televised form on screen, but there seems to be a commitment to not having an actor play him, or at least not be seen by the camera. No one wanted to publicize the fact that there was a threat against Johnny, and the notion of a few stolen typewriters managed to seem legitimate enough to anyone who wasn’t a legitimate suspect. Andy was dismissed pretty quickly when it was determined that he was too goofy and unfocused to be able to do anything, but there was an entertaining moment where he was the top choice by the cops there. It was odd to see the kind of writing you see at the end of movies based on real events that explain how things actually worked out, but I guess it’s because they wanted to drive home the fact that some of this did indeed happen, unlike most of these stories involving our fictional friend Andy. It makes sense that Andy wouldn’t be too familiar with getting high, and I’d say that the funniest part of it was when he saw the beauty queen from his school while he was buying barbecue potato chips and touched her face a few times to make sure she was real.
