Guilty pleasure
3 April 2008 | by (philippines) – See all my reviews

I loved this episode! Yes, it's moronic, and that's the pleasurable thing about it to me! I especially like how low tech (in a series with at-the-time cutting edge effects like in The Mission) the toupee is, crawling along on the ground. It's the same dumb humor as the homicidal bunny in Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail. I also love the puns. Isaac Asimov once said puns are the noblest form of wordplay. The bigger the groan, the better, and that title is quite a groan.

Lastly, I like the nerd lawyer. Nerds were still up-and-coming at the time (Bill Gates was still on his way to becoming the richest man in the world) so for a nerd to save the day and get the girl, well, I like the idea!
