Top of the Heap, the spin off, anyone seen it?

Post by ARMAN » Sun Jan 25, 2015 7:59 pm

Just found out that there was a show, spin off of MWC "Top of the Heap" with Matt LeBlanc, I thought it was just an episode on MWC. I cant find a single episode online, anyone seen it?

The Spin-Off didn't make it to a complete series - just like the other two spin-offs "Radio Free Trumaine" & "Enemies" :wink:

Yea they made 7 episodes, have they been aired after the original broadcast? Wiki page says this:
Though it lasted only seven episodes, it was nonetheless the most successful of three attempted Married...with Children spin-offs during the main series' run (the other two being "Radio Free Trumaine" and "Enemies")

I remember watching the first few when it debuted as its own series. It was disappointing as I recall, but I'd kind of like to watch them now.

I recall seeing the first episode, but I don't think I watched any after that. I didn't think much of the show at the time.

I've just binge watched Friends for the first time in my life (never seen a single episode before and boy that was a good show!) and then watched Joey which was a spinoff of Friends. From LeBlanc's wiki page I found out about TOTH, never know it existed. Shame its nowere to be found :(

They needed to have LeBlanc on for like a season or two, then do a spinoff. Hey, Vinnie Verduci could be reborn in Bud's World!

There were 7 episodes. Has "Puttin' On The Ritz" as a theme song.
Bud appeared in one episode, Kelly appeared in two. No other cast members made appearances, but people like Pamela Anderson and other MWC babes did.

Saw a very small glimpse of Get A Life with Chris Elliot. Now that was a great show. Almost as good as MWC.
