Quite possibly the single best episode of a classic sitcom
8 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Every character on this show is hilarious, and almost all of them make an appearance in this zanier-than-usual episode. The townspeople believe that Bob has murdered his wife and decide to re-enact the crime that they think happened. Among the best lines -and there are many - "you could hear a pig drop" and "blow out the match - your hair looks like hell!" Twenty-two minutes of pure comic perfection. I've watched this entire series multiple times but this episode can still make me laugh out loud. I love the much-celebrated series finale - sheer brilliance- but it didn't have anywhere near as many laughs as "Murder at the Stratley." Check it out.
