January 4th, 2018 under Better Late Than Never, Jeff Dye. [ Comments: none ]


Jeff Dye and Terry Bradshaw have become really close thanks to their show Better Late Than Never, that the football legend thinks of the comedian as a son. But have they gotten too close? It seems so because Dye is morphing into Bradshaw. At least from the forehead up.

Want to see the two of them tour Europe and bond with William Shatner, Henry Winkler and George Foreman as they do so, then you have to watch the best show you are not watching, Better Late Than Never that airs Mondays at 9p on NBC.

Better Late Than Never will make you laugh until you get lock jaw!
December 11th, 2017 under Better Late Than Never, Henry Winkler, Jeff Dye, William Shatner. [ Comments: none ]


In 2016, Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye toured Asia and our relations with the Orient has never been better. Now the five men are exploring Europe and I predict the same because who doesn’t love The Fonz, Captain Kirk, The Blond Bomber, Big George and Jeff Dye? Tonight at 10p on NBC, the five of them begin their journey in Munich, Germany and Lederhosen has never been on five more fine men than these guys on Better Late Than Never, a comedic traveling docuseries.

It has been a year since the fantastic five have been together and they meet up at the airport on their way to Germany. Once they touch down in Germany, they quickly remember why they do not leave Dye in charge of the planning. He rented them a tiny RV for their trip. For their first stop, they visit a cute town and Bradshaw runs into someone on the street who knew one of his teachers. You will never believe what she tells him that teacher said about the NFL legend. It is a classic moment that will give you first huge belly laugh of the night.

And the laughing keeps on going when they decide to dress like the Bavarian do and each get a pair of Lederhosen. For the rest of the episode, they will don those sexy leather shorts with pride. Where is the first place they model them? Oktoberfest, of course! Next place, The Hangover Hospital because they all got really drunk and need to recuperate from all of their alcohol intake.

Once they are feeling better they go and have a picnic at a park. A park where clothing is optional, therefore, Bradshaw takes off her Lederhosen and everything else but his boots. A site that reminds them all that they are hungover.

How can they get a speedy recovery? Get on the autobahn, an 8,000-mile highway with no speed limit. That is unless you are in a RV that cannot go past 50 mph. Thankfully, they will get the need for speed out of them by going to a racetrack and racing to see who is the fastest. Guess who is the winner?

Time to slow down a little, so why not do The Sound of Music tour. See where the hills came alive for Julie Andrews and now comes alive for them. This stop really gives them time to bond.

Just in time for their last stop, that takes them to all new heights. They travel to Zugspitze, Germany’s highest peak and at the top of the mountain; you are able to see four different counties from that vantage point. It is a stunning site that makes you want to hop on a plane immediately and see it for yourself.

It is a moment they will soon not forget, just like we not ever forget this show. It shows us that not only that you can enjoy the world at any age with friends, but it also shows that the world is a beautiful place to explore with those friends. In addition, we get to see places we never heard and now we know where we want to go for our next vacation. Hopefully, we can hire Jeff Dye as our tour guide too.


Here are five fantastic facts about the fantastic five, and what we can expect to see this season in Europe.

All of the fantastic five would love to do another season, so how many more can they do? Last week I attended a panel with all of them and Dye told how long he could see it going, “Me pushing all the wheelchairs with a long beard.”

Did you know that Better Late Than Never is based on Korean show called Grandpas Over Flowers. A title that all but Dye understood the meaning of. If you need me to explain it to you, let me know.

Which of the fantastic five is the most recognized? Bradshaw revealed, “I tell you what is fun is as you travel from country to country, one of the things, the one thing that I took was that of all these great personalities, these actors and comedians, the guy that was the most recognized around the world so far has been George.”

What is a shocking moment coming up this season? Executive Producer Jason Ehrlich say we expect to see, “When we were in Sweden, Bill sacked Terry, which is pretty impressive. “

There is one moment from Sweden that as of now we will not be seeing. All I will say it involves Surströmming, which is Fermented Herring, and projectile vomiting. The fantastic five want that scene in, but as of now it is on the cutting room floor. Thus, they have started a petition to get it included in the episode. From how they describe, this needs to be in the final cut, don’t you agree?

If you like to laugh until your cheeks hurt (I swear that mine hurt me all day after watching tonight’s premiere), then this is the show for you. Tune in tonight on NBC for the special preview at 10p after The Voice, then mark your calendar for its return on January 1st, in its regularly scheduled timeslot of 9p on Monday nights. I promise you in many languages, you will not be disappointed.

Henry Winkler takes it all off on Better Late Than Never!
December 7th, 2017 under Better Late Than Never, Henry Winkler, Jeff Dye, William Shatner. [ Comments: none ]


The Better Late Than Never boys are back this Monday at 9p on NBC and at least one of them takes off all of his clothes. Because when in Europe, do what Europeans do. More specifically, the people of Munich!

Will it be William Shatner showing of his Shat? Will it be Henry Winkler showing the thing he sits on? Will it be George Foreman showing off his boxing glove? Terry Bradshaw showing off his 4 Super Bowl championship rings? Or will it be Jeff Dye doing it again like he did when they were in Asia? I am not going to tell you, but I will tell you that he looks damn good in his birthday suit. As if you needed another reason to watch BLTN other than to see a grown man in all of his glory.

He is not the only one who gets naked this season, Henry Winkler also does it when they take an art class. How did he feel about being a nude model, last week at press event for the show, the nicest man in Hollywood told us, “I was really petrified, but, then, what happened is after a while, you forget that you’ve got no clothes on.” To which Shatner responded with, “You’re the only one who forgets. We all remember. It’s, like, emblazoned.” Without hesitation, Winkler chimed back with, “I thought it was a wonderful gift for you.”

How did The Fonz feel after seeing himself au natural? The actor revealed this about his reveal, “I saw myself, and I thought, oh, my God, I look just like that Butterball turkey we just had.” It reminded me of Thanksgiving too, but in a different way, because I was thankful to see that the 72-year-old still looks sexy as ever. Gobble gobble.

What I am also thankful for is that the season premiere left me in pain because my cheeks were hurting due to all of laughing and smiling I did for over an hour straight by watching this episode. Better Late Than Never is an enjoyable and educational show that you can watch as a family and feel all happy afterwards. Therefore, you should watch the special preview this Monday at 9p and then on January 1st when it moves to its regularly scheduled night!

BTWF home videos: Jeff Dye doing a skit
September 6th, 2016 under Before They Were Famous, Jeff Dye. [ Comments: none ]


Before Jeff Dye traveled to 6 cities in Asia with Better Late Than Never, he thought that two of the countries he visited worshiped Campbell’s Soup. How funny was the 24 year old back in 2007?

The Fonz, The Shat and Jeff Dye talk about Better Late Than Never
August 30th, 2016 under Better Late Than Never, Henry Winkler, Jeff Dye, NBC, William Shatner. [ Comments: none ]


Last week, Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Jeff Dye, George Foreman and Terry Bradshaw all traveled to Tokyo with Better Late Than Never and tonight at 10p on NBC they go to Kyoto, Japan and Hong Kong. Looks like some of them might’ve had a little too much Sake and that doesn’t sucke for us.
Kyoto also didn’t sucke for Dye because he told us at a recent press day, it was his favorite city out of the six that they went to while there were there for a month. He explained why, “Because I think, in my brain, when I travel, I want it to be different than anything I know. So any city that reminds me of something I already know, I kind of go, oh, this just reminds me of New York, or this just so I was quick to not dismiss, but to be, like, Tokyo is beautiful, but it feels like something I know.” Then he added, “And Kyoto felt like nothing I’ve ever known before. It was like a very I don’t know, like, it was a small city, and it was rich with tradition. Everyone was so excited to share with us things that I’ve never even heard of. It was just very cool.”
For Winkler what was cool, was the kids. He happily shared, “We met families, we met children everywhere that we went, and there was no language between us…George would sit down, and all of a sudden it was like these children, who had no idea who this gigantic human being was, didn’t understand him, they could have been his grandchildren. They found games to play, and punching, and sitting and jumping. It was truly emotional.”
As The Fonz said, they didn’t know who George Foreman was, but he wasn’t the only one they didn’t know. Even though the four older men on this journey are legends here in the United States, Shatner said it was a different story over there. He revealed that, “They didn’t know who we were, because the shows, certainly the shows I’ve been in, weren’t playing in Asia. And it was interesting. The only people that recognized most of us were American tourists, which we found plenty of, going place to place.” The natives might not have known who there were, but they were all still very friendly to them.
Believe it or not, before the show the octogenarian Captain Kirk had never been to Japan. Why? He joked the tickets were too expensive and no one else bought them for him. Then he got serious as he disclosed what an actor’s life on the road is like, “You know, actors go like, fly someplace, and they go to a hotel, and they do the job, and then you think, the lumpy mattresses and bad food; I want to get home. And you don’t see the location. We go on locations all the time, but never see the location. What you see is where you’re filming and the hotel you’re in, and you go there at 6 o’clock in the morning, and you get out of there at 8 o’clock at night. And I want to get home. My dogs. My dogs.”
My dogs, is how he might refer to his four new friends that he will have for the rest of his life. Dye had to this say about his now old buddies, “I learned something from each of these guys, which is my favorite thing. And maybe that’s just good casting by these guys, or whatever. But everyone had something so much different that I really enjoyed.” The comedian enjoyed learning that Shatner was the bravest and Bradshaw was afraid of everything.
Thankfully, Sake was not one of the things that Bradshaw was scared of because that makes tonight’s episode even more endearing.
Better Late Than Never has proven to be a wonderful show that takes us on heartwarming journey with five men who all got to experience many new things in several new places and came out stronger from it. We get to go along for the ride and laugh with them as we all get to learn things we never knew before about these six cities we have never been to before but will consider in the future. Plus, we get to learn more about some of our favorite actors, athletes and Jeff Dye as they discover each other in a continent of discovery.
