No two actors made such an amazing career out of being dull than Ozzie and Harriet. Their weekly show with sons Rick and David were masterpieces of bland. I guess Ozzie was a bandleader at one time. In this episode, Ozzie plays a scientist who has one failure after another. His perpetual motion machine only lasts for about six seconds. Harriet plays a woman who is forgetful to a fault. As a matter of fact, today she would probably be diagnosed with dementia. Ozzie depends on her to remind him of things and she forgets. When he blows up the living room, she can't remember that he asked her to clean the place. Now he wants to try a new experiment. He wants to poison Harriet and then bring her back to life. His nephew happens by and blows the whistle on Ozzie before he can see if his efforts come to fruition. This sets up the circumstances that end the story. Ozzie is a perfect choice to play the innocent, clueless scientist. He is eternally hopeful and about as dense as poundcake. It's an acceptable episode.
