Larry the Panty Perv
Parev Readers! How is your week going so far? You might remember me mentioning how much I enjoyed the Betty Page movie starring Gretchen Mol. Being a big fan of Gretchen, I was watching her most recent TV series "Life on Mars" (sadly now defunct) in which she plays a NYPD lady officer in the early 70's. Anyway, I recorded the series when it was still airing and it's taken me a while to get around to watching it. I watched one episode yesterday where she was an undercover stewardess (flight attendant) and they had that guy who played Larry Appleton on Perfect Strangers (old sitcom with Bronson Pinchot as a whacky foreigner living with his uptight cousin Larry) playing a bit part. He was a panty pervert of all things. Apparently he was buying used panties from the stewardesses for his collection. The police arrest him because they think he's a killer, and they bring in his panty collection as evidence. The collection was WAY too small for a real panty perv, maybe twenty panties in all. The panties they picked were pretty nice though, mostly satin bikinis and such, although I suspect that if it were indeed the early 70's there would have been more than a few grannies mixed into the collection as well. Again, a missed opportunity for a panty perv like me to be a consultant on set. "No, no, those panties are all wrong! Here give me those (stuffs them into pocket), let's try some different ones eh?" ;^D Actually, beautiful Gretchen appears in some sexy sheer lingerie later in the same episode for more undercover work. I'm sure the series will be on DVD soon, so if you're a fan of the lovely Ms. Mol, do check it out.
