User Reviews

Arnold Schwarzenegger ain't got nothing on John Ritter.
2 May 2006 | by (Mansfield, Pennsylvania.) – See all my reviews

There is something suspicious about the man that Buffy's mother is dating and it isn't that he lives with two women. John Ritter plays a warped Mr. Cleaver perfectly as he tries to mini pizza his way into the hearts of the gang. The episode itself uses him to send up the idea that evil comes in only one form, a theme that plays out a lot in this series. This is also the first episode where Buffy faces what she believes to be the reality of killing a human, a plot line that would return in the third season. Whether playing one serious game of putt putt or fighting to the death with Buffy in an amusing action sequence, John Ritter proves that he is real mean machine. Kristen Sutherland has one of her better episodes as well.

9 out of 10.

Ted(half his face warped to revel the robot beneath): "Buffy, would you like to play some Parcheesi?"
