Scene Steelers
20 May 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

An episode about two hammy actors making commercials. Unfortunately it leads to a rather tedious and half baked episode which cack handedly tries to deal with the subject of mental illness.

Derek Vivyan has seen the last of his good days on stage and screen. When his parrot dies while pecking at the beef bourguignon, it seem Derek might have been the intended victim.

The suspect might be his co-star in the commercial, blonde Heather. Both Derek and her have a waspish relationship.

Remington and Laura are called in to investigate and a long lost child star might hold an important clue.
