Wacky Weird
8 December 2012 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

This was one of the last episodes of this series, and Billy O'Sullivan plays the role of a kid who died at 15 in a shootout with police. Billy had been abused by his father, and his therapist had used Bill's life as the foundation for a best-selling book. So Billy comes back from the dead, and he has split demonic personalities and is also angry at the people that hurt him.

At this point, Detective Stone spent every episode trying to pass philosophical judgment on the demons that he was hunting down. The dumb thing about it is that Stone would be having a discussion with the Devil (played by John Glover) about whether or not the kid belonged in hell. Meanwhile, the kid was killing people all over town, and Stone did not seem to think that was worth factoring into the discussion.

Stone tries to befriend Billy, and on numerous occasions, Billy takes on one of his alter-egos (Vic or Jenny/Tammy) and puts a beatdown on Stone, who then creeps back to his apartment to wonder if Billy is a bad kid.

I think this episode was a good example of why this show got canceled. In order to create more screen time for John Glover (who provided the best lines and the best acting), the writers took the easy way, and turned Detective Stone into an emotional cripple that needed constant motivation from the Devil.

Too bad. The Devil character could have been used better, and Stone could have been more active and less whiny. John Glover could have been used more to help Stone find the demons, instead of just popping up to tell Stone that he deserved to go to hell. That gets old after about six episodes!

The chemistry of the show was kind of depressing and whiny towards the last 3-4 episodes. The last few episodes are hard to watch without fast- forward.
