In this first episode of Travels with Miriam, Miriam attempts to order food after her inconsiderate husband, Bertrand, ate everything in the house. Her grandson, Akspa, also makes an appearance, handling the calls since she is unsure of which end of the phone to talk into.
Going through several exploitation films of the late 60’s, I managed to uncover this interview with a young Miriam. She was apparently a go-go dancer back then, who wanted to show the world her famous ta-ta’s. We learn a little about her life in this rare, lost interview from 52 years ago.
The audio quality isn’t the greatest, and a lot of her answers are muffled. Perhaps someone out there can decipher what exactly her answers to all the questions are?
This prologue was recorded 2 years before the episodic show began.
It introduces the characters Miriam, Bertrand, and Jeremy. It is required listening to make sense of some of the weird situations that happen in later episodes, so it is included here to help build a basis around the characters in the later episodes.
Miriam, an 84 year old woman, believes that she is on TV, even though she is merely talking into a bowl of wax fruits.
Bertrand, an 85 year old man, and Miriam’s husband, just wants his wife happy.
Jeremy, a 45 year old man, is their seemingly dimwitted son.
The family is dysfunctional.
Miriam has a few screws loose.
Jeremy is not too far off.
Bertrand is Bert.
