    Loved the show but it quickly went downhill after they got 'horizontae'.
    It only managed to capture the previous magic in a few later episodes.
    My personal favourite episode would be the send up of Rocky IV ……………….. 'We talkin' fun evening or what'.

    I put my favourite Bruce performance above as 'The Return of Bruno' mainly because it was David Addison let loose on the music scene.

    The Rocky 4 one was great!

    They send Maddie and David out on a real date only to be foiled when the scalped tickets to the Opera end up being intended for a couple of international spies!

    On one of the Moonlighting DVD commentaries, Cybill said that, with them averaging 14 episodes or so a season, the series would have worked better in today's TV environment with shorter seasons and longer breaks. It also didn't help that there wasn't a large ensemble cast to share the load -- all the pressure was on the two leads. But when that show worked, though, it was truly brilliant...

    Thanks for the info!

    It was a "must watch" or must record at that time.

    For the record they did 6, 18, 15, 14, and 13 episodes in the seasons.

    The 14th episode of season 3 or 37th episode was the point of no return...haha.

    To this day I've never been able to fishish the final season.

    Back to Bruce ...thought he was excellent in Unbreakable.

    I don't blame you for not watching Season 5. Overall, you're not missing much (although "Womb With A View" is amazing). I'm one of the few who actually likes Season 4. I thought Maddie's absence forced the writers to try harder to come up with good episodes and several were, indeed, fantastic: "Trip To The Moon," "Come Back Little Shiksa," the "Cool Hand Dave" 2-parter, "Tracks of My Tears," "Maddie Hayes Got Married" and the brilliant "Father Knows Last" which contains one of Bruce's finest acting scenes ever:

    My favorite Bruce Willis is TV Bruce Willis: Moonlighting, Friends, and one that hasn't been mentioned, "Miami Vice", where he played an abusive husband.

    This is what I came to post. I also think he's great in Pulp Fiction, and Die Hard is hard to ignore for me, but in Unbreakable he really affected me.

    Also, he seemed a breath of fresh air when Moonlighting first came out. Pity that show declined so rapidly and so steeply.
