Tod and Buz are in Phoenix, Arizona working as construction laborers with a land development company. When Tod due to his Yale background is summoned to Personnel about a job opening, Buz goes in his place in order to meet a pretty lady executive. Buz surprisingly gets the job and may have "found his place in the world". Or has he? Written by
Different kind of entry, along with a neat twist. It's really Buzz's episode since we track his entry into the high-powered atmosphere of a corporate boardroom. For the blue- collar Buzz, that takes us some getting used to. Plot-wise, the corporation's top executive (Graves) and its controller (Barry) are looking for a non-conformist to fill a top vacancy. So they go outside the company's confines for a candidate. Through happenstance, Buzz is interviewed, and needless to say, shows he has a mind of his own, which is just what they're looking for. But will Buzz's success break up our favorite open-roaders.
The middle part sort of sags, but the first and last parts make up for it. Barry's quite good as the calculating Terry, showing that a woman executive can be as scheming as a mana rather early feminist touch. Graves may appear a bit boyish for his high- powered role, but manages to persuade anyway. Don't expect much location photography (Arizona); most of the action takes place in suites. All in all, the twist lends the entry a distinctive note. Plus this may be our only chance to catch tough guy Buzz in a fancy suit.
