Uncle Roy visits!
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Uncle Roy played brilliantly by Jaws' Murray Hamilton is an old sailor who returns home to see his brother on his birthday. He doesn't know that Carl has passed on. Instead, he brings stories, tall tales, and himself to Mama's house as well as oysters or some seafood for them to enjoy. Of course, the episode begins with Vint complaining about nothing ever changing around. Ellen is in this episode with Fran out of town or something. When Uncle Roy arrives, he helps Vint, Buzz, and Sonja but Thelma has a different reaction. He helps Sonja in preparing for her big night out in a local pageant. Buzz is cooking or baking or both and Vint had dreamed of being a fireman. As Uncle Roy, Murray Hamilton was brilliant and easy to take as an estranged family member.
