The absolute worst episode of the series.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With Charles Levin, Colleen Camp and Kareem Abdul Jabar.

Every series has their low, and this episode is waaay worse than any others. This episode tries to be funny, but it's really quite pathetic. It deals with a couple (Levine and Camp) both I guess imitating Woody Allen or something. They go to a little shop and buy a lamp, inhabited by a poorly acted genie (voiced and played by Jabar) that is mean and likes to make fun of them. The whole episode is being told by Charles Levine in a mental hospital. The ending is pathetic and I'm just plain sad that such a great series would make this episode. On VHS volume 3.

My rating: Trash! 22 mins. TV PG
