Introducing Inspector Luger's mail order bride
29 August 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"The Arrival" introduces Carina Afable as Perlita Avilar, prospective mail order bride from the Philippines, completing a long journey to marry Inspector Luger ("I had many proposals, but marriage was never mentioned!"). Alas, she's kept waiting all day as the reluctant bachelor shows little inclination to give up his freedom, but sincerely admits that he's lonely (she would return in the series finale "Landmark"). Captain Miller is dumbstruck that Luger failed to notify him that she was coming (Harris: "Barney, he didn't get her for you!"). Mario Roccuzzo (fifth of six) plays Norman Deluca, a handicapped mugging victim (wooden leg) who takes a shine to the Filipino beauty, and in a curious twist his assailants are never caught (Deluca would return in "Old Love"). Andrew Bloch (second of two) plays Vincent Brysom, arrested for ransacking the office of MENSA, the organization catering to intellectual eggheads, who casually admits to being a member (Brysom: "they told me to wise up!" Wojo: "okay smart guy!"). MENSA president William Deats (Alan Oppenheimer) wants Brysom to attend several meetings to avoid prison, but he opts to remain where he is (Wojo: "you're doin' a stupid thing!" Brysom: "well it's a start!").
