Aired November 10? Should Have Aired On Halloween!
29 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

Vincent Price is a rich eccentric of an undeserving family who dies and leaves the fortune of his family estate to the family member who can solve his video riddle.

Price returns as his own equally disturbingly conniving brother out to get his hands on the family fortune as well, along with Julie Newmar, Hermoine Baddeley and William Windom.

Also along for the fun is Abe Vigoda as the butler, Barlow.

Now our bionic woman's mission is to get a folder with important documents inside, which is hidden with the fortune. Jamie must pose as a distant cousin who is invited back, the cousin having run away to join the circus.

The riddle is pretty much like something in Alice in Wonderland, and the solution was actually rather cool, tho a bit far-fetched in finding the final hiding place.

But by far, the best part of this episode was the cast. Catwoman, Egghead, Mrs. Naugatuck and Phil Fish.

and of that set, it was all Vincent. He was as unscrupulous as always to the very end, making feeble excuses and explanations for what his true intentions were.

BIG SPOILER!!! The cousin that Jamie posed as received the inheritance, as it was ruled she was the smartest cousin for NOT returning to the family estate.

When the nefarious culprit was revealed and all was said and done, Jamie sat in a restaurant with Oscar Goldman and she looked to a nearby table to see Vincent Price, Julie Newmar and Hermoine all sitting calmly.

"Oscar, why aren't they in jail?" Because the family woudln't testify against one another, so no charges can be pressed.

Vincent sends a message via waiter, wanting to know if they can join Jamie.

"NO!" she tells the waiter.

So what does this trio do? They invite themselves over.

"Oscar. Oscar, those people are coming over here! They are coming over here!" That was the end of the episode, still-frame on Price, Newmar and Baddeley approaching the table.

They were a sensational scary bunch and Jamie had every right to be scared.
