Fun From Beginning to End
25 May 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Considered one of the series top and most beloved episodes it features Karloff, Chaney, and Lorre all playing themselves and hamming it up to the max. They converge at a Chicago hotel while at the same time there is a secretary's convention going on there. They are making plans for their 'comeback horror movie' and decide to test out their new monster outfits on the secretary's to see if they still have what it takes to scare people. The result is over the top hilarity and culminates with every secretary fainting at the sight of Chaney in his wolf man outfit. It's fun from beginning to end. There is also the added element of seeing a rivalry crop up between Todd and Buzz who compete with each other for the attentions of the secretaries while working on the hotel's wait staff.

The only negative to this episode is the fact that all the women are stereotyped as being overly lovesick, ditzy, and too easily frightened. Again this is mostly done for the sake of comedy, but in the end it gets to be a bit much. However the line that Lorre gives to the hotel desk clerk who seems to recognize him is a real gem.

Grade: A
