Film Development
27 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know much about film development, but I don't think Bud was doing it correctly. After taking a roll, he went into the bathroom and used it for a "dark" room, except the room wasn't dark at all - ever. When Porter came home and caught him, Bud opened the door and left it open. Porter opened it and looked inside. Then when Sandy was helping him, they left the door open and it was light inside. Did I miss something? Bud complained that his film was over-exposed...you THINK???

Anyway, this was a pretty good episode besides the film part. A young Martin Sheen appears in this episode, and he's always easy on the eyes. His characters story was pretty well developed, considering it was a half-hour show.
