Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: Small message of reassurance to that horizontal young lady: don't despair, help is en route. It's coming in an odd form from a very distant place, but it's, nonetheless, coming.
Narrator: [continuing narration, subsequent to extensive character dialogue] Submitted for your approval, the case of one Miss Agnes Grep, put on Earth with two left feet, an overabundance of thumbs, and a propensity for falling down manholes.

Quite Charming
28 April 2009 | by (Asheville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Not sure why the previous viewer didn't like this, but I found it both funny and charming, and well performed by both Carol Burnette and Jesse White. If you were expecting a creepy or scary TZ episode, this would definitely stick in your craw, but as a comedy from a writer normally not associated with the genre, it seems quite skillful.

Jesse White, forever associated with the Maytag Repairman role, is a kind of angel who's not quite certain how to be angelic. He's read the books but never walked the walk, and his attempts to redeem Carol Burnette's life don't quite make her as happy as he thinks she ought to be. Burnette is consistently excellent in this episode.

A good atypical episode from this series, from the same direction (the worth of conscience) but employing different means. Watch it and judge for yourself.
