Completely dreadful
4 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There's nothing worse than an unfunny comedy and episode 22 of the first series of MONSTERS is exactly that: a completely dreadful, and totally lame, attempt at a comedy. The storyline, if you can even describe it as such, sees a bored suburban housewife who comes into contact with a minor demon (in human form, inevitably), who makes her a deal: he'll make her famous if her soul is his.

Unfortunately the whole thing is played for laughs with the viewer asked to accept characters dressing up in Halloween masks and the like as the real thing. It's only of note today in that the main devilish character is played by Chris Noth, who later went on to find great popularity in SEX AND THE CITY. Sadly his acting is horrendous as is everything else about this lame, should-never-have-been-made episode.
