This is a very solid episode, Victor Buonos second guest starring role in the series. I don't think it is an accident that Victor led off this season as well as the pilot episode. He always adds something to any show he appears in - even when he was the strange King Tut on Batman.
Richard Pryor is in this one too, adding to a very strong supporting cast. There is some major magic & illusion in this one, as Buono seems to be step ahead of West & Gordon most of the show. There is lots of top notch entertainment in this episode. This one is a very good show as it includes a real monkey, unlike the pre-fab ones at this time on NBC.
This show was to have a great second season & this started was a prelude to some of the strongest shows to come, & holds it's own with any of them.
