60's screwball comedy movie condensed into a Route 66 episode
In his review of 1987's Blind Date, Rex Reed said a farce is OK as long as it's logical. This farcical episode is mostly logical, except for the bit about Tod falling for a girl who is not at all his type. I suppose it's OK to step out of character in a comic episode of a dramatic series, and this is the funniest of all the Route 66 comic episodes. It's done in the style of the madcap screwball comedies of the 60's, neatly condensed into a single hour. In fact Blind Date was a throwback to that style, and if this episode was 90 to 120 minutes it would be a pretty good example of that genre. Soupy Sales acquits himself well. He is neither wasted, nor does he overshadow the regulars. I loved the bit where Soupy does something predictable and Glenn Corbett responds with something I didn't expect. Well done.
