Timothy Carey & Michael C. Gwynne shine in this episode
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A madcap sprawl with memorable characters surrounding Ben Vereen. Guest stars Timothy Carey and Michael C. Gwynne steal the show. Couldn't find Jeff Goldblum.

This show needs to run again.

I particularly like the feel the director allowed of Carey and Gwynne being on the edges of mania at all times. The idea of Gwynne's character, "Tokar the Great" had many great possibilities none of which were allowed due to time constraints no doubt and perhaps the writer's limitation for the length of this program

Ben Vereen brings his innate musical sense and warm personality to the occasion with restrained brilliance thus setting off the madcap- characters very nicely.

Check this one out for the scene in which Vereen, Carey and Gwynne bust into a house where the money is supposed to be. The back story from someone on the set at the time was that Carey let go with one of his legendary farts just before 'action' was called so that the characters enter the room like a blast out of a cannon...hilarious!
