The best episode.
16 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

I don't know if this is one of the most remembered episodes but for comedy it was best. Like All In The Family had, Diff'rent Strokeds took the serious story of Rashomon and made it into comedy gold. I think the appeal of doing this as a comedy is seeing how comically egotistical everyone's telling of the story is. I think the thing I remember most about this particular episode or the facial expressions. Arnold's blubbering lips, Willis' tears. Very funny stuff. It's sad that the show did so many of those dumb "special episodes" and didn't focus more on their cast's comedic talent and timing which is very much on display here. The show would JTS within a year due to the appearance of that annoying kid Sam, but this episode was a last hurrah before the Arnold character became too serious.
