Directed by Robert Hegyes (Juan Epstein)
22 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Class Encounters of the Carvelli Kind" was the only episode directed by Robert Hegyes, whose character Juan Epstein is the only Sweathog missing in action. A questionable script spoofing "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," bringing back Charles Fleischer and Bob Harcum as Carvelli and Murray, walking into the classroom reporting that they were captives on a spaceship, almost describing the plot of Universal's 1955 "This Island Earth." While gazing out the window Kotter imagines that Mr. Woodman not only believes Carvelli's story, he intends to become the ship's next passenger when they land in the schoolyard. Practically unwatchable, with apologies to the courageous director.
