All Hail the King!
18 January 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

If anything, part two of this two parter is even better than the first one. Written by Adams and his sister, the story picks up where part one ended-with a deadly tarantula on 86's arm! After escaping this "Perils of Pauline" hazard, 86 begins to get jealous over his wife's constantly mistaking the King for him, so he pretends to be the King and comes on to her. But 99 discovers its really Max and not the King, so she decides to teach him a lesson. This scene is not only funny, but also has a nice heartfelt ending that says a lot about their relationship.

Max then rushes to the embassy to save the King from Rupert (James Caan) and recover the royal scepter. One of Rupert's henchmen is Adams' best friend Don Rickles, making a cameo appearance.

Max and Rupert have a great swashbuckling sword fight (and there does NOT seem to be any use of obvious doubles in this at all) and a face off over a vat of lava or acid or something like that (there's a great bit involving Rupert's henchman opening and closing the vat door).

Just like part one, Adam seems totally re-energized and committed to the comedy in ways not always seen in season four. His performance hearkens back to the best of seasons one and two when the whole thing must have been so fresh and new to him. Caan is great and shows a comic flair he did not often get to display in features.
