EPISODE 6: Saturday NIGHT SPECIAL- ***

Writers- James Nathan & Don Bohlinger

Director- Lisa Gottlieb (Just One of the Guys)

Gordon (Scott Burkholder) unhappy and alone goes to an agency and makes a video dating tape, but lies about who he is and what he does; he gets a date with the beautiful Lana (Shari Shattuck) and his dream date becomes a nightmare; the 2nd half has Lana's friend Mary (Molly Cleaton) unhappy with her looks and has plastic surgery and than becomes beautiful and now played by Joyce Hysner of Just One of the Guys, but beauty is only skin deep. This episode was fairly good, but the first story while entertaining never really goes anywhere, but still fun; the 2nd half plays out almost like a morality tale of self esteem, but still works for the most part. Not a great episode, but fairly enjoyable. Stu Charno of Friday the 13th Part II appears in a brief role.
