Wild and Wilder
1 May 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

You have to love any television show that has the good sense to cast Sherry Jackson in it.

Fan favourite for being in so many genre shows on television she shines in this episode as Lola Cortez.

William Schallert, later of Hardy Boys fame plays the rotten old games master and as these supposed rich people all wander around in a room playing games and vying for gifts the boys have to find an explosive which will explode in a number of hours.

It really doesn't make any sense but the colors to the show are vibrant and everybody looks like they're having a great time making it.

Enjoyable.
