Groucho hijacks pilot.

Author: westernone

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The real problem with this unsold pilot is not so much it's premise, but it's got a personality problem. It might be a bit flat, but it might work well enough except for Groucho's appearance on the panel.

I state here that I'm a longtime fan of Mr. Marx, but he is too much for this program's brittle format.

The tepid little murder mystery had a chance, but only if one takes it seriously, made even harder when the performers who acted in the film musts sustain their persona's with enough intensity to answer unscripted questions AS the fairly cipherous characters assigned to them.It requires focused attention and concentration to work.

Groucho takes nothing seriously. He asks fresh questions of the girl, talks about the prize money, imagines himself in some plot elements, etc. And more or less tells everyone how silly and undeserving of your attention it all is. and so he utterly torpedoes the show.
