Live Tweeting Matlock

Today I live tweeted episode “The Godfather,” 1993.  This episode of the television classic, Matlock, is a tale of two rival families joined in wedlock and a lot of stupid sports competitions that someone doesn’t handle very well as well as an exciting look at another married couple’s problems.


1:06 PM Oh, Ben! You didn’t realize Leanne was inviting ALL THOSE PEOPLE over for a wedding reception! She got you! #Matlock

1:07 PM “Keep it up, Fred. You’re gonna look all the more stupid when I win the Volunteer Fire Fighter’s Competition this year!” #Matlock

1:10 PM “You listen to me and you listen good.  You don’t take the whole platter.  You take ONE cookie.  One.  Got it?” #Matlock

1:12 PM Did #Matlock just accuse his daughter of beastiality a little bit?

1:13 PM Bachelor party!  That’s quite a lot of nudity for 1993 on NBC. #Matlock

1:18 PM Why is Ben’s neighbor wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates hat in Atlanta? #Matlock

1:20 PM “I did not kill Brad; I swear.” And now we’ll spend about 30 minutes finding out who did.  Ben always knows by the top of the hour. #Matlock

1:22 PM Girl with an upset stomach + random mention of OBGYN = Mark my words, an unwanted pregnancy! #Matlock

1:22 PM CALLED IT! #Matlock

1:24 PM Pretty sure Leanne just referenced abortion?  This episode is awfully relevant! #Matlock

1:27 PM Should that pregnant girl really be at the bar? #the90s #Matlock

1:28 PM Oh wait.  She refused a drink. #Matlock

1:28 PM “You know, you used to drink beer all the time, now you never drink at all!” She’s pregnant, idiot. #Matlock

1:30 PM Cuckold husband leaves pregnant wife at the bar with a full pitcher of beer after she accuses him of murdering JR’s real dad! #Matlock

1:32 PM Jesus they’re talking about the Volunteer Fire Fighter’s Competition and arm wrestling again.  What is this, high school? #Matlock

1:33 PM “You’re sayin’ Matt killed Brad because he lost at arm wrestling?” WORST.  REASON.  EVER. #Matlock

1:33 PM “NO!  I’m sayin he killed him because he wanted to win the Fireman’s competition!” Duh, Ben.  #holyshit #Matlock

1:39 PM That guy can’t be surprised he’s arrested!  He went to the dead guy’s motel to try to steal from him! #Matlock

1:41 PM Ha!  Cuckold husband tried to pay for wife’s abortion by secretly loaning money to her lover!!! #juicy #Matlock

1:44 PM “You got me out of jail faster than a jackrabbit running from a fire.” #Atlanta #Matlock #jackrabbits

1:45 PM It’s like 15 till.  Ben should have this figured out by the end of this commercial break about portable Oxygen.  #Matlock

1:46 PM “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” is a Registered Trademark.  Ha! #Matlock

1:50 PM Right on target.  Ben has his “That’s it!” moment with ten minutes to spare.  #Matlock

1:51 PM “I hear that you were in a horseshoe competition last year.” This killer has a lot of really lame hobbies.  Even for the 90s. #Matlock

1:52 PM So basically this guy killed Brad because he kept losing at stupid sports.  #soreloser #Matlock

1:54 PM “This is for keeps” is how Matlock twists the knife in the loser.  He can’t even win at stabbing someone.  #Matlock
