Might be the worst thing I've ever watched in my life. Truly terrible.

Our episode starts on an alien planet where alien Arturus has plans to conjure up a demon so he can have him grant him a wish. However he gets the spell wrong and winds up conjuring a insurance salesman named Arthur Gambit. Thinking he has just conjured a demon Arturus command Arthur give him lots of gold which he can't, unable to convince him he is a normal human being. Arthur tricks Arturus into sending him back to earth were he makes him a promise he will get his gold. Instead he uses the same spell to conjure up his own demon to get gold for the alien, but, much like Arturus, Arthur also gets the spell wrong as well. If anyone has read my season 1 review for the episode "Their Divided Self" you'll remember me saying it was every bit the bottom of the barrel, and while I figured this show probably couldn't go any lower then that, not surprisingly it did. This is pretty much an episode were Richard Moll from "Night Court" almost unrecognizable in thick layers of makeup, dances around like a moron for 20 minutes, then to make matters even better they decide to bring in Eddie Deezen and have him pretty much do the same. It's literally one of the most annoying things I've ever seen. The whole thing is played up like a late 80s kids fantasy show. That's fine and all, but, not for a horror themed series for adults entitled "Monsters" I mean who is your audience for this crap. Overall, I'm gonna quit ranting on this, just be warned its bad and I mean bottom of the barrel bad.
