Bland for the most part
19 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This wasn't a poor episode by any stretch, and there is some decent writing, but overall, I found it too light and boring. The faces include Mary Ann Mobley, Lydia Cornell, otherwise known as Lydia Korniloff, John James, Edd Byrnes, Tim Rossovich, and a fake Indian named Iron Eyes Cody, who's really an Italian guy named Espera Oscar DeCorti. The REALLY boring story titled "The Big Bet" has Corky Daniels(Corky, really?), played by James, after a woman(Cornell), considering he just bet his pals that he'll score with her. When she accidentally finds this out, guess what she does? She sleeps with him anyway, in order to "punish" him for using her. What morals she has! This 1982 episode was just before AIDS became a public scare, but up until then, everyone was jumping in and out of the sack. The other story, "Nancy and the Thunderbirds", is not about a rock band, but about Nancy Carsons(Mobley)trying to fulfill a prophecy to her adopted Native American father, played by DeCorti. If you're expecting an intriguing prophecy, you may be in for a letdown, because it's about her flying a jet. What kind of silly prophecy is that? I'll give the story props for originality, but I didn't feel it made any sense. Lastly, it's evident to me that Mr. Roarke and boring Julie don't have much chemistry as he did with Tattoo, who is missing yet again.
