Danza Moment of the Week: Christmas in Connecticut; Plus, Self-Promotion!

What happens when Angela decides to spend Christmas with that dick Geoffrey?  To what lengths will Angela go to find Tony’s baseball card?  What gift will Tony get for Angela that shows once and for all how much better he his than that dick Geoffrey?  Find out!

Continue (I know you will) with Parts II and III of “The Christmas Card.”

Isn’t it weird that the big joke with Mona is that she’s a huge slut?  Sorta like Blanche Devereaux, but with even less subtlety.  Kind creepy now (and even creepier as a 7-year-old).

In other (big!) Danza news, the folks over at Gawker.TV were kind enough to let us explore our fascination with Teach: Tony Danza in greater detail.  We ask the question: Whatever Happened to Teach: Tony Danza? Check it out!

Danza Moment of the Week: You Heard That?

Why let the fact that Teach: Tony Danza is on indefinite hiatus stop us from delivering a Danza Moment of the Week?  Do you think Tony Danza would let that silly little fact get in his way?  N-O, NO.  So then here we are, the Danza Moment of the Week:

Thanks, YouTube!

Danza Moments of the Week: Back in the Habit

A couple weeks back Tony Danza was nice enough to get into his time machine in order to perform a horribly outdated, rhythmless, patently offensive rap.  Apparently that went over so well that he decided to turn his standard birthday song into a hip hop ditty (for the principal!).

No, no one is smiling.  And while she’s not wishing that you would disappear, she probably would have preferred it if you spared us all the minstrel show.

And it was a two-fer Friday night with two back-to-back episodes of Teach, so here’s a bonus moment of the week.  Somebody has a crush!

BURNED, DANZA!!!!!  OUCH!  And Chloe adding insult to injury with that glasses crack, no less.  Nice work, kid (although, that doesn’t appear to be a regulation school uniform.  Guess it was casual Friday).

And in case you’re still skeptical out there:

But, as much as we’ve had our fun with Tony Danza, we have to admit that he really poured his heart into teaching these kids, and took the responsibility severely more personally than most teachers do (although, he’d probably get jaded too if he taught more than one class a day for more than one year).  He even volunteers to mentor a troubled teen delinquent who’s not even in Mr. Danza’s class.  Sometimes Danza takes the “he reminds me of me” thing a little too far (especially when he compares losing his father when he was thirty years-old to a kid being in jail while his mom died) , but he’s certainly willing to sacrifice his time and energy to help these kids.  He’s the boss.  So good for you Tony, just PLEASE stop rapping.

And apparently this was the season finale, which means the first season ended on a dark, pessimistic, almost The Wire-like note, as Tony struggles to get through to his students and questions his ability to do so, while his reclamation project may be heading to prison.  It certainly wasn’t the uplifting conclusion we expected.  Let’s hope that means it’s merely a cliffhanger to be revisited in season two (although the fact that they burned off two episodes in one night is not an encouraging).  But until we get that resolution, if we even do at all,  we’ll be worrying about the fate of Tony Danza, boxer, taxi driver, boss, tapper, teacher.  At least we know he’ll be breathing okay.

Huh?  Are you talking about your real daughter or Samantha Micelli?  Or Alyssa Milano?  We’re confused.  And so is Jillian.

This would have been terrible and awkward and uncomfortable and mildly racist 15 years ago.  Now it’s just yikes.

Danza Speaks!

Our friends at Urlesque snagged an exclusive interview with the teacher-boss, who explains why he still refuses to revive his Twitter account, despite the blog’s massive campaign.  Relent, Tony, relent!
