This is a pretty dumb show. The series had little enough to do with anyone's reality, but it also had little wit, little glamour, little real gloss - they kept on recycling the same old sets (slightly revamped sometimes), they kept making continuity howlers, and the big-name guest stars were mostly required to overact tiresomely. Here, the "eccentric" characters are so tedious, it becomes positively embarrassing to watch them, especially if you know the ill-looking William Bendix died very soon after this was first aired. It wasn't one to go out on. Of the guest stars, indeed, only Elsa Lanchester makes any impression. And it turns out that her role is not only very brief but entirely redundant.
