Last Time I saw Ferris
13 November 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Although the Chief is still missing (apparently Ed Platt was suffering from back problems) Arne Sultan is back and gives season three a big boost. Max meets a woman in a graveyard who promises to turn over the goods on a KAOS killer (and show business agent) named Mondebello (Then Wyenn) for $50,000. However under further investigation the woman turns out to be a dead witness named Ann Ferris (Ina Balin, who co-starred with Jerry Lewis in "The Patsy"). Smart and 99 investigate further, going to the show biz offices of Mondebello where they have a funny encounter with a dumb blonde receptionist and meet Vogel (Len Lesser, Uncle Leo from "Seinfeld") who directs them to Ferris' mom. This leads to a séance back in Smart's apartment where his poker table is a little long for séances. This episode puts the show back to where it was with a funny open where Max's keen mind can't seem to get Ferris' name right and inspired jokes throughout. The episode suffers from a fairly weak ending, the absence of Platt (Agent 37--Bryon Morrow replaces him for no explained reason) but it is well written, funny and is true to the show's characters.
