Donna On The Go: FALL
"Really!" was one of the funniest episodes in Season 2 about a series of events that led up to a runaway wheelchair. Donna even had a stunt double for that sequence. It was conceived of and directed by the legendary stunt man Vince Deadrick Jr. Vince has stunt-doubled for Jeff Bridges in many films as well as for Michael Douglas in groundbreaking stunt work on Romancing The Stone. The episode even has a reference to that film in a line of dialogue from Donna. See if you recognize it and post below!
"Really!" was also submitted for Emmy consideration for Outstanding Short Form Series.
