LA Rams
1 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I was unaware that some members of the LA Rams were making an appearance on this show, it was pleasantly surprising when I found out, only because the NFL team meant a lot to me a kid back then. The Rams included head coach Ray Malavasi, and players Frank Corral, Jim Youngblood, and Anthony Davis. The other more recognizable faces include Janet Leigh, who gives a strong performance, Christopher Stone, Ken Berry, who's not annoying for a change, Annette Funicello, and Larry Storch. Without going into much detail, both stories were decent enough, and neither was much stronger than the other, but they were both carried out well. The story with Carol Gates(Leigh)finding the twins she left for adoption was fairly touching, and the story of Elliot Fielding(Berry)had a tinge of playful horror, and was entertaining, and as I always mention, I'm a fan of the "darker" stories. I'll say the best aspect for me was the Rams segment, as I'm a little sentimental about that team which doesn't exist anymore.
