As a person that has been critical of the series, I will say that this was the first episode that actually had some good laughs. Mind you- most of the laughs happened to be slapstick comedy, it still made the experience of watching the show positive.
Bill Bixby does a fine job of guest-starring as a college paranormal professor that is trying to continue funding his classes by showing the staff that there are ghost living among us. And of course he sets his eyes on the Gull cottage.
At first the Captain tries to frighten the professor away but this only leads to more fascination by the visiting teacher. And in a way the Captain has played right into the professor's hands as he will get fellow professors to visit the house to see for themselves. However, the Captain and Mrs Muir, have a plan to set the young professor back with his head at a low angle.
With some actual good gags and humorous jokes, this episode was the best of the offerings so far in the series. It still seems that Hope Lang is not quite comfortable in the role as she seems to play her part with such a stiff projection. But thanks to Mr Bixby, who was perfectly cast, the show was entertaining enough to view.
