Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: A word to the wise now to any and all who might suddenly feel the presence of a cigar-smoking helpmate who takes bankbooks out of thin air. If you're suddenly aware of any such celestial aids, it means that you're under the beneficent care of one Harmon Cavender, guardian angel. And this message from the Twilight Zone: lotsa luck!

Don't Bother
29 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Carol Burnett stars as awkward and terminally unemployed Agnes Grep, who has friends but no luck and little money or prospects, which prompts some divine intervention in the form of Guardian Angel Harmon Cavender(played by Jessie White) who is desperate to earn his wings, but will face a huge challenge getting Miss Grep to cooperate... That loud thud you heard was the sound of this farrago crashing and burning, as it remains a complete an utter dud on every level, and most unworthy of this normally fine series. Sticks out like a sore thumb in the canon, and looks like a failed pilot forced into the series. An embarrassment for all concerned, and best ignored.
