The Merits Of New Wallpaper
1 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gee, what a goofy episode this one was. There was less than a minute devoted to an actual crime, the rest of the show being more "dry" comedy of "Bill Gannon" and his dinner guest "Joe Friday" unable to watch a football game because of constant interruptions by goofy neighbors.

We also get long lectures by Bill to poor Joe about getting married, the merits of wallpaper and other household interests, and other inane topics to a bachelor like Joe Friday. But Webb's character good-naturedly puts up with it all. He's amazing in the patience he demonstrates with his goofy partner.

Harry Morgan as "Gannon" is also excellent, of course. Who else could deliver such nonsense and still be so entertaining and likable?
