  • Predictable plot, stereotyped characters

    6.5
    This was another corny attempt at a serious plot hampered with stereotyped characters and a predictable plot. (Did anyone actually think that Stone was actually giving away the original copy of Mark's contract?) This would have been an above average episode if all the humor was left out.



    Anthony Zerbe was the one standout for me in this episode. I was really impressed by the amount of suavity and slyness he gave to his character Stone. But unfortunately, his top-notch performance immediately fell apart the moment he lapsed into humor ("Thank Hell you're here!"). I wish he had played his part completely straight-faced throughout and let the other characters handle the gawd-awful humor. Given Zerbe's obvious acting prowess, I suspect he was made to do all those funny faces by the director.



    Berryman is a good actor. But like Zerbe, he is handicapped by a ridiculously written part.moreless
