A Surprisingly Well-Written Episode Despite Its Premise
7 June 2015 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I realize that "Small Wonder" is not for everybody... or MOST people, but if you can check your brain at the door and remember what it was like to be a kid, you can appreciate it, and this particular episode is a gem. Ted (Dick Christie) installs a hologram projector into Vicki (Tiffany Brissette), with which she tricks nosy neighbor (William Bogett) into thinking he's seen a UFO, and hilarity ensues as they try to convince him otherwise and keep the government out of it.

The fun of this episode are the darker wisecracks against the various characters and how human "Vicki" is in this episode. She gets a couple of good snaps in, often at the humans' expense, which is slightly wittier and edgier than the typical jokes on this show. It feels like at this point in the series, the writers knew what they had and were braver about playing around with the dialogue a little. I found it to be a pleasant surprise, but was disappointed that the writers didn't go on to do anything else noteworthy. Ah well.
