Lyle Waggoner as fellow Orkan Xerko
15 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

"There's a New Mork in Town" casts Lyle Waggoner as Xerko, one of Mork's great Orkan idols, whose visit to earth puts Mork in hero worship mode. Only when Xerko shows great interest in replacing Mork so he can make inroads with Mindy does the full implication sink in. She discusses Mork's lack of resistance with her concerned father, but Fred, conductor with the Boulder Symphony Orchestra, is genuinely impressed with Xerko's knowledge of Stravinsky. Reluctant to engage in a final showdown, Mork dons his red spacesuit against Xerko, who removes his cape and hands it to the onlooking Mindy, while Mork's robe lands over her head! Mindy's living room becomes a shambles as the duel continues with invisible swords, Xerko confident of victory. What gives Mork the gravitas to win is Mindy's ribbon of victory in her childhood spelling bee, Xerko leaving with one new attribute, humility.
