It will never be Must See TV. That has been decided. But the cast and crew and fans and everyone remotely associated with NBC’s ill-fated vet-com Animal Practice should take heart in knowing that the show has joined a much more prestigious and spiritually significant television category: TV shows with Auburn-won Iron Bowls playing in the background.
Here’s Rizzo the monkey watching what Sarah and Josh Willis, the devoted eagle eye’ers who caught it, are certain is John Parker Wilson gettin’ the business in the 2007 Iron Bowl. (Yes, the speed and ferocity and the way he instantly folds to the inevitable certainly smacks, as it were, of Brodie sackin’, but when we go to the cantina tape, we can’t find a match.)
Animal Practice was cancelled a month ago. This was the show’s final episode. It didn’t even air, this was a purely HULU deal. So we won the Beat Bama Food Drive and the final scene of a cancelled show’s final un-aired episode is a monkey watching Auburn beat Bama in the Iron Bowl.
The signs are there, people…
