Yes indeed...very strange episode
27 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, the attitude by Sam is strange. But I wonder if this wasn't another total spin-off that was planned as another, separate series. That would have made sense. And then altered when AGS stopped production. That would explain why the Italian family was dumped. They just didn't fit the pattern for the final plans for the MRFD series. Very odd, I agree. Can you imagine what the viewers in the mid-60's must have thought when this episode came down the pike? In those days, it must have seemed like the final episode of a modern Seinfeld or the final Sopranos. A total and absolute jaw dropping HUH?? I imagine the answer is available somewhere on the internet. Overall, though, the AGS is still the finest television comedy ever produced. We're still watching after 40 years later.
