unforgivable
15 September 2010 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

How, how, HOW do you trot out an episode this bad for guest stars Casey Kasem and Jamie Lee Curtis (pre-HALLOWEEN)? The writing is so dreadful that pity is the only reasonable response. Casey plays an LPGA announcer who is only marginally more credible than Bobcat Goldthwait would be. Jamie doesn't fare much better as a young pro whose life is being threatened. I hope it was the directing, and not an acting choice, that made her smile like it's all silly fun shortly after being shot at. The sexiness meter never wavers from flaccid, either. The only thing that saves this episode from one-star land is a fight scene so over-the-top that hysterical laughter is guaranteed. Jamie and Kris tumble from a collapsed bridge into water, and Kris promptly fights off not one, but TWO ten-foot alligators, bare-handed. You heard me, cowboy, two of 'em. She survives, and surgeons are able to save her life...um, i mean, she survives without a scratch.
