This is the Most Lightweight Episode of the Entire Series
9 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Basically this episode is just an excuse to showcase Buster Keaton, wearing his trademark hat, and having him go through pratfalls reminiscent of his silent film era that are not very elaborate and barely even amusing. The worst part about this is that they add in some cartoon like sound effects that are unnecessary and annoying. The one part where these routines could have been used more and have been worth it is in the climactic street fight sequence, but here they strangely decided to pull back making it culminate rather quickly. The story itself is paper thin and carries no momentum whatsoever.

Seeing Keaton in one of his last performances is this episodes only real selling point. It's fun to see such an old pro mixed in with the younger stars as well as their differing acting styles. However this episode is still one of the most threadbare and lightweight of the entire series.

Grade: B-
