Unbelievably Bad
25 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I've read reviews of other episodes of this show having Gazarra jetsetting to Monte Carlo. I had only seen one episode with him as a hobo out west.

I decided to check out this one in a 'haunted house' to see how it faired. It was terrible.

Also starring Sharon Farrell and Donnelly Rhodes, the premise was Rhodes took Gazarra and Farrell to his childhood home where he was abused by his father.

This in essence became the crisscross of the episode; Rhodes and his concealed brother said the house was haunted to scare people, justified in Rhodes mind for the abuse he endured from his father.

First off, the 'scare tactics' were far from scary. The fear was heightened by Farrell's being scared of her own shadow.

Right off the bat, Rhodes endless dialogue about being abused, then getting in Farrell's face, all looked like something from a stage play. As well as it was truly horrendous writing.

The idea that the brother was playing congo drums when Rhodes came home to find his father had killed himself was beyond vague trying to clarify how events played out. It was all silly.

And this was to be a haunted house episode? I might check out another episode or two of this show to see how it plays out, but this one was not one of its finer programs.
