An early Burgess Meredtih performance
20 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

It has been not commented yet. So I do it. Our lead, the future Rocky Balboa's trainer, plays here a fellow in a bar speaking to another guy, telling him a non sense story about martians. A drunk one way talking, but only at first sight if you are close to what it is said. You may be fooled, so keep caution. Personally, I don't like too much talkative shows, but this one seems eventually interesting, especially if you consider it in the red scare wave era. The way Meredith consider dudes in the bar as martians is a sort of metaphor of the red scare that spread all over the country at this time. I won't spoil this episode any further, but it is an excellent piece of work, believe me.
