The second part of "Tyger, Tyger" is frankly a little dull and padded.
At one point, people set up a movie projector and we watch surfing
movies for what feels like minutes and then later, Kildare, Pat and a
group of surfers sit around a campfire while Kildare croons a song.
The one thing going for this episode is Yvette Mimieux's excellent
performance (she gives her all to her numerous grand Mal seizures).
There's also beefcake and cheesecake when Mimieux dons a bikini and
Chamberlain gets into tight white bathing trucks to go surfing. (Robert
Logan and Clu Gulager provide excellent eye candy on the beach too.)
But, there's very little development of Anjanette Comer's alcoholic
character over the length of two episodes. At first, she seems to be
auditioning for the part of Neely O'Hara in "Valley of the Dolls" and
she lets out at least three blood-curdling screams that any screen
queen would envy. But, there's nothing for her to play here.
The excellent Clu Gulager is also left with nothing to do after it
looked like he was being set up as a love rival between Kildare and Pat
Holmes. He shaves his beard and then there's no big scene between his
character and Pat.
There's so many scenes of surfing stock footage it almost makes you
think they bought ten minutes of footage and were going to show every
minute of it.
