Maybe This Time...

During an interview last week with Dane Cook, Craig mentioned a show called "Maybe This Time" which he starred in with Dane, along with Betty White and Marie Osmond. The show ran for just over a season on ABC in 1995-1996.

I do have a few episodes from this show, which I acquired through YouTube last year. Sadly, the channel was sucked into the YT black hole and the uploader seems weary to repost them, despite my begging and pleading. I haven't begged in a while, so I'll have to put that on my to-do list. In the meantime, I have been scouring the intergoogles in search of any more eps...

So, I know some of you are very excited but I'm quite weary to post them for a variety of reasons, some of which include: the crappy quality, some sound is out of sync and the fact that some episodes aren't so good. What if ABC, or it's proper owners are shutting down people who post these clips? I wouldn't think so, but since I've been posting episodes of the Late Late Show on YouTube, I have experienced some pretty whacky incidences of blocking due to copyright infringement.

Perhaps you've noticed, but every time Craig does an episode of "Murder She Wrote 2009" I have to take the title page out, otherwise, YT picks it up and blocks the video. Despite the original show's age and no longer being aired in primetime, I found this rather cheeky. So, you see, it's a tricky business this YT uploading....

I have considered this totally worthy as a Craig Vacation Treat, so I have 2 weeks to make my decision as to if, when and where I will post an episode. Sadly, I don't even have the funniest one I've seen, but the eps I have do involve Craig and I have to admit he looks mighty tasty. I can't leave you hanging, so I've included some photos, which shows the poor quality of the footage but also what a 1995 Craig looks like, before The Drew Carey Show and before His Chattiness was crowned.

As usual, I look forward to your comments and suggestions!
I'll keep you posted, my lovelies...


  1. fyi, I think the Maybe This Time episodes got deleted last time because of Marie Osmond. If you do choose to upload them, perhaps just don't tag Marie Osmond. Also, it would be horrible if your MS account got deleted for too much copyright infringement so be careful!

  2. perhaps you could create another account for those episodes and redirect people to that account using your malinky one? maybe you could use a different email adress for that account, too...

  3. I see your predicament Mal, well it's totally your decision in the end and we wouldnt want anything to jepodise the late late show uploads.

    Least we have pictures of a '95 Craig hehe.

  4. Hey dear.
    I just completed downloading all the videos from your channel. In the worst case the youtube police will decide to shut it down, I am keeping an archive (bear in mind I keep the HQ version, not the HD version. The audio is the same in both versions, the video is slightly less better BUT it takes a 3rd of the size). The only connection is S-L-O-W.

    And again, thanks for the truly wonderful work you do


  5. If the quality's not that good and you're worried about copyright infringement, then I wouldn't worry about posting any episodes of it. I would really, really hate to see your YT account get deleted because of something like this. Although I wouldn't mind if you posted some more episodes of the Drew Carey Show, as they make nice little treats when we're being visited by the Re-run Fairy!
