Storyline

Tod and Buz are working in Chicago as, respectively, a motel lifeguard and a warehouse employee. Buz inadvertently helps colleagues who are playing a nasty practical joke on their supervisor; the latter, profoundly embarrassed by the intrusion into his private life, quits. Buz tries to help him regain his confidence, in part by orchestrating a meeting between the supervisor and the telephone-answering-service woman that the "joke" centered on. Written by dubchi

Great On Location Shooting of Chicago
13 October 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Buz comes to the aid of a very shy co-worker who has been talking to a female operator for years over the phone, but doesn't have enough confidence to meet her in person.

This story unfolds nicely and has four distinct acts to it, which flows well and keeps the viewer involved. However in the end it seems like just a carbon copy of MARTY as well as full of a lot of stereotypes and clichés. The main asset of this episode is the fantastic on location shooting of Chicago. There are some great shots of the skyline, as well as Wabash Avenue, and even the Marina Towers under construction. There are also some nice scenes shot on the roof of the Tribune Tower and at Buckingham Fountain.

Actor Sorrell Booke gets a good early role as the shy and hopelessly self-conscious co-worker. He plays the part well enough that the viewer has sympathy for him without it going overboard and becoming pathetic. Buz is showcased quite well here and this maybe some of his best stuff from the entire series.

Grade: B-
