One terrific scene
1 July 2014 | by stones78See all my reviews

This is another classic "one good, one bad" story from this interesting show, although the "good" one could've been better, and "bad" one had a somewhat decent ending. Sorry for the confusion. The story I slightly liked stars the always entertaining Jeanette Nolan who is trying to communicate with her dead husband again after many failed attempts. The scene which I liked best has all of her crew and Mr. Roarke conducting a seance in a darkened room, where her late husband does indeed speak to her through a painting on the wall. This vision upsets the surprised Roarke, and then HE starts communicating with her and tells her that he won't allow her to follow through with the fantasy because she may not return if she goes to meet he ghost. I'll leave it at that, but let me lastly mention the nice chemistry Irma(Nolan)has with her grandson Keith, played by Ike Eisenmann. The goofy and boring story has Arte Johnson and Marcia Wallace playing scientists who keep accidentally wrecking labs and blowing them up while trying to create a perfect formula which I don't feel like wasting my time or yours discussing. Look for an uncredited role from John Larroquette in an odd scene where a bunch of important people are chasing the scientists.
