Mr. Daniel Loomis...candidate for sainthood!
27 November 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wow. There is a man named "Mr. Daniel Loomis" and you hate him long before you see him! Throughout the show, Friday and Gannon investigate a long series of opportunistic crimes committed by this jerk. The show begins with Loomis robbing his wife's blind grandmother! She is literally left standing in a corner with every item in the home gone--including any place for the poor lady to sit! Her reaction, however, is pretty funny when she talks to the police! When they ask Mrs. Loomis about a description of this bum, she indicated that he has a heart tattoo on his arm--with his OWN name in it! Then, they find out that he robbed his one-time roommate. He also apparently stole the money for his mother's funeral--and that is my Loomis' brother can't stand him either. And, when ANOTHER of Loomis' wife is contacted, they realize that he never bothered to divorce her--so he's committing bigamy. Plus, he left her when she became pregnant! Later, they find that he's got another fiancée--so he's planning for a 3rd Mrs. Loomis!

When they finally find the bum, the interview and his amazingly selfish outlook on life is apparent--he's simply entitled to ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. In fact, he's the perfect embodiment of an antisocial personality disorder, as he lies to, steals and burns everyone he meets...and never denies any of these acts! However, in each and every case he feels this is okay. Listening to his egocentric view of life is quite entertaining...too bad there are quite a few other people like him in this world.
