    The Force Boxman parody show was good and I kind of wish we could have seen more from that. This was an entertaining finale, but they wrapped things up (essentially forgetting it) way too quickly.



    Marty Allen's material was great too.

    This is another in a thrilling run of reality-stretching episodes. Garry moves to New York to take the lead in a cop show, which is a ridiculous concept in itself - most shows would have simply built the comedy around that. This show doesn't stop there, though. Garry sublets his condo to Red Buttons, and apparently, Garry's show and friends are a package in the deal, because now It's Red Buttons' Show, and he takes over Garry's life and friends. Red gets to do his "ho ho, hee hee" song from TV's early days, and soon has the whole gang dancing along.moreless
