The show experiments with comedy....with middling results at best.
Lester (Larry Blyden) is a mild-mannered and very honest man...and as a result, his nasty boss (John Hoyt) looks down on him and threatens to fire him. Later, his girlfriend also treats Lester poorly--telling him she didn't respect him because he was a wimp. Finally, poor Lester has had enough and decides to grasp hold of his masculinity and show some initiative. How? He was going to plan to steal a very valuable scepter that his company was paid to protect. The problem is that Lester knows nothing about larceny and the folks he requests either turn out to be idiots who cannot be trusted or just idiots. There is no way such a ragtag group could ever successfully do anything! So what happens? And how did Lester end up being a hero and reclaiming his manhood by the end of the show?
As I mentioned in the summary, the show was normally a suspenseful show but there was nothing suspenseful about it--it was all played for comedy. At best it was mildly amusing, at worst it was kind of dopey. Overall, I'd say it's at best average and nothing more. Perhaps it also illustrated that the show was running out of ideas.
