This is my favorite show from the 70's, but this particular episode is the worst. Those 2 kids are beyond annoying. Their lines are too cutesy-trying-to-be-funny while also trying to portray a tough-street-smart persona. Instead of find a balance, they strike out on both sides. The kids over-act with their caked-on accent. It's not that they necessarily should have been cute, but you think they'd write and cast in a way where you WANT Fish to help these kids out. The other thing that bugs me is the fake-laughter surrounding the religious nuts' lines. The story isn't engaging or funny. I really should check: Did they have a writer's strike? Why do both stories fall flat so much, on a show that's normally scores episodes in the 9s?
