Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
The only real notable aspect of this episode is that Tattoo introduces a fantasy he personally granted for the "Mr. Tattoo" segment, obviously, and I think this was the first time this happened, although it could've happened in later episodes. This weak segment stars Barbi Benton(2nd of 8 total episodes), Connie Stevens, Fred Grandy, and Troy Donahue. There's some painful songs played and danced to, even one with Tattoo AND Mr. Roarke together. It just didn't work for me, I'm sorry to say, and their forced marriages seemed too unrealistic. The other, and much better story, stars Burt Convy as a doctor whose fantasy is to build a huge medical complex, with the proper funding, of course; Nancy Kwan and Trisha Noble also star. Everything seems to go as planned, as Dr. Carlson(Convy)has a major meeting set up with a financial adviser, but something occurs that causes the doctor to alter plans. Convy's performance is easily the most redeeming aspect of this entire episode, but I still have a hard time recommending this to a fan.
