Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Carl Reiner won an Emmy award for his portrayal of "TV legend" Alan Brady, a role originally created by Reiner on the old Dick Van Dyke Show. Paul (Paul Reiser) is at his wit's end trying to mollify the famously temperamental Brady so that he can complete a documentary. The key to the solution turns out to be in the hands of Theresa (Penny Fuller), the mother of Paul's wife, Jamie (Helen Hunt). Highlights include a discourse on Milton Berle (yes, it's true what they say about him) and Jamie's impromptu Laura Petrie imitation. This was one of several episodes directed by Gordon Hunt, father of series co-star Helen Hunt.
