None of These Really Hit the Spot

"House, with Ghost" stars Bob Crane, Hogan from "Hogan's Heroes" who eventually succumbed to some pretty weird stuff. He is paired up with "Laugh In"s Joanne Woorley. He wants her dead so he can pursue an affair with an insensitive blonde who is only interested in his money. He rents an English house which supposedly has a ghost and waits for his wife's nerves to get the best of her. Unfortunately, things don't always work out. I found this episode really dull.

"A Midnight Visit to the Neighborhood Blood Bank" isn't even worth mentioning. A young woman is visited by a vampire (didn't we just see the same thing?) Short and clichéd.

Forrest Tucker is featured in "Dr. Stringfellow's Rejuvenator." He is a snake oil salesman in the old West. He is generally harmless until a man comes to him to get assistance for his dying daughter. The good doctor has an adversary, a drunk who is also a doctor, who challenges him at every turn. Stringfellow gives the girl some of his stuff, promising that it will make her well. When it doesn't he promises that he can bring her back from the grave. What happens makes for a neat horror story. The only problem is the pacing is so plodding and the events unfold so slowly that on is almost lulled to sleep. Good idea but not so good execution.

"Hell's Bells" stars John Astin (there must have been a Patty Duke, John Astin connection in this series). He is a reckless hippy who drives too fast and gets himself killed. He ends up in a waiting room, imagining that he is in Hell. Interestingly, there are strange things that happen. A fat lady called "the fat lady" appears every time he throws litter on the floor. He eventually goes into a dull room with ugly furniture, a stack of records that play awful music, an old man who doesn't hear well and runs on and on, and a couple who are going to show him their slides of their trip to Tijuana. There are thousands of them. Astin is quite good in this and it is just goofy fun. The best of this lot.
