I love this episode!!
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With Connie Stevens.

For some reason this episode always appealed to me. The idea of it is just really interesting. Old man Farley has died, and after his funeral, a fake medium (Stevens), Farkey's niece and nephew all find that Farley is undead. He's using his niece Jenny as his mouthpiece and the house is stuck between Heaven and Hell. Connie Stevens gives a wonderful guest appearance as the greedy and uncaring widow, and everyone else does an excellent job too. In my top 5 episodes! Can be found on TFTD volume 6.

My rating: Perfect episode. 23 mins. TV PG V
