Matrimonial Munster?
6 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After Herman and Lily leave for the beach, Marilyn goes out with her boyfriend and Eddie leaves to play in the neighborhood, Grandpa is left alone and is brooding about it. "Nobody cares about a sick old man," he moans. Even Igor, the bat, won't play checkers with him. "You're nothing but a rat with wings," Grandpa yells.

Coincidentally, moments later he then sees an advertisement in the newspaper that reads, "Are you lonely? Do you seek affection, companionship and matrimony in the sunset years? Let the Kindred Spirits Matrimonial Agency make your 'September Song' a duet." Wow, that sounds great to a lonely man, so he answers the ad.

In a few days, a woman from the agency comes to the house ("Lydia Gardner," played by Linda Watkins). She's obviously a crook, preying on old men to get their money. In fact, we find that out shortly when we see her and her real husband (longtime actor Neil Hamilton) back at the office, bragging about how they've fleeced (and killed) five husbands in three months.

Lydia (a.k.a. The Black Widow) is going to be in a for few surprises in this latest scam, especially when she tries to execute Grandpa's death!
