This Week in Milford

Talking turkeys

Lot going on today for a holiday which I volunteered to analyze this strip  not only to earn an extra turkey leg later but because I have to actually work all day tomorrow so this nonsense will be passed on to the next turkey.

Looks like a nice revealing scoop shirt on the TV reporter; cant tell if theyre talking on or off the air, but I’d rather watch her then Welcome Back Carter at this point. She even has the requisite bling on her wrist. Yes, imagine a big star out in the middle of nowhere carving up secondarys like, yeah, turkeys.

So True is now on a website in addition to the ‘hot’ new show that nobodys watching? News to me, but at least she’s giving us more then we got from Gil or the Carter gang. P2 also reveals that P1 was on the air, and the return of Boo Radley to the strip after at least 2 holidays. Hey, its almost winter; put some clothes on!

P3 reveals that the show we we watching was indeed Prep Spotlight, so obviously local. Good thing they have a better eye for talent then the boobs running  “WBC”.  Why would Prep Spotlight care about the Big Sky Conference anyway? And apparently True has a video of the show at his fingertips to show Mimi, because isnt he in school and has a class to be in in 5 minutes? Some priorities.

Well my priorities are Prep Spotlight, Marjie Ducey, and a big feast today. Happy Thanksgiving all!



  1. this strip was in Louisville’s Courier-Journal. True’s shirt is the same color in panels 2 & 3, suggesting that True never ‘changed out’ before coming to school…

  2. It’s possible that Perp Spotlight (which in earlier stories was a Mfnrd counterpart to Wayne’s World) simply repeated the story from the presumably national TAP sports show and website. I doubt Gil or Mimi has any more interest in those shows than the rest of us. Am I remembering right, that there was a TAP or SAP or something involved in over-covering True and the other kids at the summer camps? In any case Holly Wood has called in some chits and the guy she called has made sure “Welcome Back Catbarf” gets a plug on TAP.

  3. vagrant a has it, or at least as good a handle as possible on this strip because it is pretty unclear whether Mimi is talking about the show depicted or if Rubin forgot that Prep Spotlight doesn’t air on TAP.

    TAP (Total Athletic Programming) is the ESPN of the Milford-verse. They first appeared as the network that broadcast the great Milford-Bishop Tardy basketball game.
    Prep Spotlight was the local show that Marty Moon hosted before being replaced by Sacko and Hatt, it hasn’t been mentioned in some time.

  4. Thank you, billy– that was how I remembered it, just not in the kind of detail you bring to the discussion. I like “vagrant a,” by the way, the way Tommy DeVIto liked “The Four Felons.” Do I remember right that Hatt (Matt something) and Sacko (6-7) were the two who swapped medical reports, only to be outed by Wally Lamb at the homecoming game?
