Love takes a furry twist in this slice of romantic comedy. A young woman falls for a stray dog with a secret: by night, it becomes a man. Follow the journey of the golden retriever and the friend who gives him a home.
In this brilliant one-man show, the mild-mannered, thirty-something Steven Banks arrives home after a long day at his dead-end corporate job, still dreaming of being a rock star. Steven receives a message on his machine from his boss, Mr. Buttle, informing him that he never received an urgent speech Steven wrote for the board of directors. Steven must scramble to write a new one, but he has less than an hour to do it. Along the way, he continually procrastinates and distracts himself from the task at hand, playing with toys and various musical instruments, baking cookies, putting on costumes, leafing through an old high school yearbook and performing some hilarious original songs along the way. Meanwhile, he's got to deal with his grumpy landlord Mr. Mescue, his clingy girlfriend Phoebe and even a broken toilet. Will Steven ever finish his speech? Or does fate have something else in mind for him?Written by
The "Steven Banks Home Entertainment Center" was originally aired on Showtime, not HBO. I was reminded of this when I recently dug out my videotape of the special and transferred it to a DVD-R. First thing you see is a screen saying "Showtime presents". I just recently got the equipment on my computer to make my own DVD's, so I've been frantically trying to transfer several nearly 20 year old tapes in my collection that may never be released on DVD, such as the five episodes of "It's Garry Shandling's Show." I have, the original Showtime airings, and "The Playboy Comedy Theater Roast of Milton Berle" (back when the Playboy channel actually aired some good original programming).
