Peter Boyle Puts A Man On The Ritz
21 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the cast is still coming together here at this point there are some good bits on this Valentine Special. Particularly the Samerai Divorce Court segment with Peter Boyle as the Judge. This episode marks one of the last segments of the Muppets for the time being. This marks a development as Lorne Michaels is trying to refine things for what works versus what does not work.

Don Pardo gets a lot of bits about his strange merchandise collection. Dan Ackroyd nails some commercials for his Barbecue. In this one, we lose Albert Books films too. Another change, & it is a good thing as the reason this series has run so long is that it got refined along the way.

This Peter Boyle is a before he loved Raymond version that is pretty good in his role as host. His humor shows up here, but the cast is still coming together & just starting to click.
