If ever there was a role Chevy Chase was born to play, it’s that of Irwin “Fletch” Fletcher. In Fletch Lives – which airs on AMC Thursday and Friday – the bumbling but loveable Fletch finds himself the owner of a Louisiana mansion –a horribly run-down mansion at that. Things pretty much go downhill from there, but Fletch never lets events alter his unique view of the world.
