    Just watched THE CURSE OF THE MOREAUS / MY MAN FRIDAY it was good, my favorite would be CORNELIUS AND ALPHONSE / THE CHOICE, one was very funny and the other touching.

    I can't remember what the name of the episode is & I haven't seen it probably since it was originally aired. There was an episode where a client wanted to go back in time to see if he could catch Jack The Ripper. I can't remember all of the details, but I believe he would go through a door to go back to that time. He then either got scared or it was his time to come back though the door to return to current time, but Jack The Ripper followed him through the door & was now on Fantasy Island. That was always the episode that stuck in my mind. We have a station here in Chicago called "Me TV" that has picked up this show, but I'm yet to catch this episode.

    With Affection, Jack the Ripper, that was the name of the episode and you are right, it was a frightening episode. Lynda Day George played the criminologist researching the case. This episode was truly creepy. (In a good way of course .)

    That episode was called House of Dolls. And it was before the movie Mannequin (1987), maybe they got the idea from this epiosde, if you have ever seen the movie you'd see the likeness to the episode.

    I always enjoyed the first episode of the series. The characters are a little ackward and haven't fully developed yet, but it's a great episode.
