I knew that the character of John was boring . . .
19 July 2018 | by johandavSee all my reviews

. . . but the writers on the show didn't have to give us 'The Great Line' just to prove me right. I watched this series when it was first on in the late 70s - early 80s and decided to watch it again now on. I was tempted to skip the first season since it only had Christopher Lloyd in one episode, and I remembered the character of John as being pretty bland. Boy, did this episode prove my point. Not a funny story, and very few of the few laughs provided by John, who's the focal point of this story.
