Don't Open the Door
27 April 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Average episode until Friday and Smith open the door. It comes out of nowhere and is very effective. Notable also for clever scene in aquarium shop where-- with apparent time to kill in the episode --shop owner walks Frank through strange birthing process of a certain variety of tropical fish. Curious to know how extraneous anecdotes like this work their way into a show like this-- are they padding the script. Anyway, notice how director Webb adds visual complexity by shooting through the aquariums. Visual boredom was always a problem for this series since it featured so much static dialogue. And for once, Frank's often pointless humor leads up to a nice closing touch.

My CD includes a Chesterfield commercial of the day, where Webb claims medical backing for the advantages of his sponsor's product on smokers' health! One thing for sure-- he lights up like a smokestack in most every episode. He died relatively young.
