Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Junior in Jepordy!

    This is an episode that could have set the scene for some future episodes. Junior could have appeared occasionally as Max's foil. He could have been the impetus for some "child in peril" scripts. As is the hallmark for the entire series, it was well written and acted.
