Really funny episode
18 September 2011 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

A judge gets blown up just as his court session is about to start. The ever-inept Frank Drebin's (Leslie Nielsen in typically terrific deadpan form) investigation leads to a man who was convicted by Drebin in the past. Director Paul Krasny, working from a cheerfully silly, but still witty script by Nancy Steen and Neil Thompson, relates the zany plot at a zippy pace and maintains an amusingly wacky tone from start to finish. The series regulars have a ball with the blithely goofy material: Alan North as Drebin's no-nonsense partner Lt. Ed Hocken, Ed Williams as brainy forensics expert Mr. Olson, William Duell as the incredibly knowledgeable shoeshine guy informant Johnny, and Peter Lupus as the blundering Norberg. Moreover, there are neat guest turns by Spencer Milligan as menacing ex-con Eddie, Bonnie Campbell as Eddie's forlorn ex-wife Lana, and Kate O'Sullivan as ditsy, yet sexy showgirl Mimi. William Shatner hams it up as only he can as a man who gets fatally poisoned while eating out at a restaurant and Dr. Joyce Brothers makes a hilarious appearance as herself asking Johnny for the lowdown on the Cinderella complex. This episode delivers a wealth of inspired offbeat gags: a jury sits down on a floor, a killer floats over stuff while sneaking around a courthouse building, a guy in the back of Drebin's car washing his window, people sitting upside down in chairs at a nightclub, and, perhaps the single most uproarious gag, the police are oblivious to the corpse of a slain man hanging directly in front of them in a tree. A total hoot.
