Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The summary line I provided is probably the most memorable part of this very thin episode, which is one of the weaker ones of the first season. Burt Reynolds must've been the man back in 1978, as he's mentioned twice in this episode, and he's also mentioned in another one; it's too bad he didn't make a guest appearance to enliven this dull episode though. If I write just positive reviews, then I'm doing the reader a disservice; that being said, this isn't a "bad" episode by any means, it just didn't have anything memorable to me, other than what I mentioned above. Regarding the particulars, the main stars were John Schuck(trust me, you've seen his face), Henry Gibson, Jane Powell, Beverly Sanders(you should recognize her), Gilbert Green, a cameo by Mary Jo Catlett, and a very awkward appearance by Mabel King, who's one of the ladies chasing Schuck's character, although I give her props for playing a role that competed with many skinny white ladies chasing this fool. The other story has a man wanting to meet a hotelier, and his fantasy is use this man's power and influence to help him build this dream hotel he always wanted but could never afford. Both stories have somewhat predictable conclusions, plus we get the obligatory disco dancing by Tattoo, which can be funny or painful, it depends on your outlook. I'm willing to give some of the weaker episodes a pass, mainly because this is the first season, and the formula isn't quite there yet, even though you may like softer stories like this one, although I prefer ones that have more suspense to them.
