What were they thinking?
8 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An episode entitled THE DEMONS from the MONSTERS TV show should be good, right? You'd expect it to be semi-serious, at the very least, but what we get instead is this silly, rubbery, comic fantasy that mixes aliens AND demons into the nonsensical storyline. The ridiculous tale sees an annoying insurance salesman who gets beamed to an alien planet, where an alien (Richard Moll, unrecognisable) has mistaken him for a demon.

What follows is very silly indeed, and near enough unwatchable for this viewer. I'm left feeling surprised that this kind of material was considered acceptable for audiences in the 1980s, as it wouldn't even get through the door these days. It feels juvenile even for children's TV, a complete waste of time.
