A comedy mystery episode
29 August 2017 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Oscar is short of cash and is suspected of stealing $50 when a blackout occurs during one of the poker games.

Just an OK episode, with a little mystery and a good reveal at the end. Oscar says he is innocent of the theft and brings everyone back to the scene of the crime at 2:30 in the morning, this includes a beautiful Swedish maid(Cynthia Lynn) who dropped in by accident during the blackout. Funniest scene is Oscar waking Felix in the middle of the night. Felix is wearing his sleep mask and Oscar tells him "I don't feel like telling my troubles to the Lone Ranger!"
