Drunken Mike

Post by Michael Pajaro » Thu Mar 05, 2009 5:50 pm

OK, let me start by acknowledging that it's easy to get cheap laughs by having a character get drunk.

That being said, I thought drunken Mike was really well done, and it's another example of why I think Justin Bruening is really well-cast. It was very funny to hear KITT calmly ask if they should get food for the girl in the trunk and for Mike to say "No! She's not hungry!"

And they went back to his drunkeness several times... having to clean out KITT, Mike telling KITT "hangover voice"...

Good stuff.

Hey Mike! Think you can post a screen cap of when they took Mike out the building and he had this totally drunk smirk/feel-good-grin on his face?

Could be a good caption contest!

Drunk Mike was pretty funny. I loved how he was rationalizing getting a cheeseburger to KITT and he was just talking really fast.

I'm going to make a motivational for that pic.

He obviously was drunk, but I'm wondering if he wasn't quite as drunk as he let on. Either that, or he's a drunken master, LOL. :wink: As he was still able to deal with the two goons holding him and grab the girl.

Anyway, I too found these scenes hilarious.

I might be looking too deep into it, but was him wanting a burger a homage to the original series? I remember Michael and Devon having the "burger debate" in at least one episode (Might have been another)

still, great bit. Cheap? Meh, I laughed.

I thought it was a cheap nod to Hasselhoff and his drunken cheesburger fiaco. 8)

Actually, I was thinking about Hasselhoff's unfortunate leaked video, not the original series. I don't think they'd make a deliberate joke out of it, though, and would write it off as coincidence.

Until I saw your post I didn't even thought about DH.

It was funny though, I like drunken Mike :P Although I first thought he was faking it especially because he still took down two guys and put a girl in the trunk.

You know what, I can use a pic of that as well. Who makes the high quality screens we see in the episodes section? I want to know how they do it.
