'Raising Hope' Season 3 finale: Burt Chance bar mitzvah - kooky? Very

There is a lot to like in the Season 3 finale of "Raising Hope," starting with the fact that it's not the series finale. FOX has picked up the series for next season, so we'll get to see at least one more year of the weird, warm -- and musical! -- Chance family.Thursday's (March 28) hour-long finale was two holiday-pegged episodes tied together. The first, which touched on both Easter and Passover, is timely, but the second was clearly meant to air closer to Mother's Day in May. No matter, though -- if "Community" can have Halloween on Valentine's Day, "Raising Hope" can be a little early on Mother's Day, particularly with an episode as strong and sweet as "Mother's Day" was.FOX's teasers understandably focused on Cloris Leachman's dual role as Maw Maw and her 104-year-old mother, who thinks she's been dead for 20 years and is waiting for angels to come and take her.... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/raising-hope-season-3-finale-burt-chance-bar-mitzvah---kooky-very.html

The season finale of "Raising Hope" will feature twice as much Cloris Leachman as usual. The multiple Emmy winner gets to play opposite herself in the hour-long finale, which airs Thursday (March 28), following "American Idol." When Burt (Garret Dillahunt) and Barney (Gregg Binkley) travel to Maw Maw's (Leachman) childhood home, they discover her mother might still be alive. The reunion between mother and daughter, as FOX has teased in promos and you can see in the below video -- exclusive to Zap2it -- is not the happiest one you'll ever witness.Leachman says it was her idea that Maw Maw should have a living mother, and then creator Greg Garcia's brainstorm to have her play both roles. Dillahunt calls it a "Milchian bit of casting," referring to the fact that he played two different parts (at different times in the show's run) on David Milch's HBO series "Deadwood."Oh, and in case you're wondering about Lucas... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/raising-hope-season-finale-cloris-leachman-doubles-down-as-maw-maws-maw.html
