Caught in the Draft, 8 September 2007
Author: zsenorsock from Argentina
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Classic "Green Acres" episode starts with the Ziffels leaving town to
go to Niagra Falls to have a second honeymoon. While they are gone,
they ask the Douglas' to look after Arnold (this is the first, kinda
mangy looking Arnold). While they are gone, Arnold gets a draft notice.
When he doesn't report, the government decides to get tough and Oliver
gets his first legal case in Hooterville--defending Arnold (this is
where he starts to become known as "the famous Hooterville pig lawyer",
a phrase that would haunt him for the rest of the series).
There's a lot of funny stuff going on in this one, including a joke about the opening titles--the only time I can remember when Oliver is in on the joke and sees the titles too. This episode also is one of the very rare times you ever see Arnold on a leash--they quickly learned that as the Ziffels little boy, he would not be kept on a leash. Other than the episode where Fred and Arnold are guarding the airplane factory, the leash disappears for 20 years until it reappears in the badly written "Green Acres" reunion movie.
