Storyline

Renowned scientist Professor Newton Jennings posits that life no more advanced than amoebas or jellyfish can exist on Mars. Martin helps Angela write a report refuting Jennings claims, which quickly gets her a failing grade. When Martin's attempts to reason with Angela's teacher, Miss Weaver, fails, Martin figures the only way to regain the upper hand and Angela's trust is to speak to Jennings and expose him as a fraud. However Jennings is brilliant but has one minor flaw in his calculation. So Martin, with Tim's help, plants a seed in Jennings brain to correct the calculation, which Martin hopes Jennings will pick up. The brilliant professor does and restates his theory, which in turn leads to vindication for both Angela and Martin. Written by Huggo

Martin Helping Angela With Her Homework
16 April 2007 | by (St. Louis MO) – See all my reviews

Good Episode in a very funny, entertaining Series. Bill Bixby and Ray Walston were always superb in whatever they did. Pamela Britton, as Mrs. Brown, a PERFECT part of the Cast for this Series. AND, Ann Marshall, as Mrs. Brown's Daughter - Angela - couldn't have been better.

It's a shame that this warm, sweet character of "Angela" was dropped after a few Episodes. She was a wonderful diversion for the "younger set" at the time, had a crush on Tim (Bixby's Character), and added much to the blend of characters' in the show. Many more Episodes, plotted at least partially around her character, would have made the Series even better than it was.

The addition of the Detective (Alan Hewitt) though good at times, was pretty much done at the expense of losing Angela, and Bixby's Newspaper Boss (J. Pat O'Malley) another real "old pro" that should have stayed in the cast. And that was truly sad as, much of the time, Hewitt's Detective was just a one-note, boring-as-written character in Episodes that Angela and J. Pat O'Malley could have livened up and brought some fun to.
