Episode Summary

A leprechaun from Darrin's family (surprise, surprise!) named Brian O'Brian comes to reclaim his rightful pot of gold from one of Darrin's clients Mr. John Dennis Robinson. Brian states that without his gold, he has no powers and gets into a lot of trouble trying to get his gold back. By the end of the episode, he makes a deal with Mr. Robinson: his pot of gold back for his image on the advertising campaign and a deal with McMann and Tate.moreless

  • Not deserving of the bad reviews

    I'm really not sure why this episode tends to get so low ratings. It's no classic, but I don't find it terrible. I watch it every St. Patrick's Day.

    I like the way they put leprechaun folklore into the episode, even if they make some of it up. As a regular episode, it's a little random, but for a St. Patrick's Day episode (when this aired), it's quite charming.

    Sometimes I wonder if Parley Baer felt bad for only ever playing ornery guys. But this episode seems to show that as a happy guy, his acting wasn't as good.

    Overall, not deserving of the poor ratings it tends to get.moreless
  • A magical Irish leprechaun who just happens to be related to Darrin instead of Samantha has lost his last remaining pot of gold and he needs magical help to get it back.moreless

    Brian O' Brian (Henry Jones) is your typical run of the mill Irish leprechaun but Brian is feeling very low because his last remaining pot of gold, hidden in an old fireplace which has been purchased by a client of McMann and Tate to install in his own home, is impossible to retrieve. Samantha offers to help him but they both run into trouble when it's found that the client, Mr. Robinson (Parley Baer) has already located the hidden treasure and intends to keep it for himself. With a bit of skillful talking, Mr. Robinson agrees to return the gold to Brian as long as Brian uses his leprechaun magic to help with an important advertising campaign.

    I found this one really dull and lacking good writing and characterization but it may appeal to fans.moreless
