Maxwell Gail directs the fourth of his five episodes
6 June 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Computer Crime" marked the fourth of five episodes directed by Maxwell Gail. Former FISH regular Barry Gordon (first of two) plays embezzler Stanley Fine, whose computer firm actually decides to keep him on and give him a raise rather than face up to disgrace by prosecuting (Rod Colbin makes his third of seven appearances). Mabel King (WHAT'S HAPPENING!!!) appears as a voodoo queen who places a curse on a reputable doctor (Roger Aaron Brown), accused of assault in an effort to lift the spell (Harris praises her stare). Barney plans a romantic dinner at home with wife Liz, hoping that the day's events don't make him late for dessert. Harris receives a call from a wife wanting her husband arrested for going out wearing one of her dresses: "oh, one of your NEW dresses, well that I understand! Oh you want to teach him a lesson? Take one of his!" Wojo: "sounds like they got a lot in common!" Harris: "yeah, including size!"
