  • A Herbert and Agnes adventure...or is that Agnes and Herbert? Remember Agnes came first! lol!

    This episode focused on Agnes and her jealousy that the newest member of the gang Herbert Viola is handling cases...well sort of. She's been here from the beginning and all she does is still type and answer phones. To prove her point she takes a discarded case of Maddie and David's about a haunted house and after many deaths (unfortunate problem for any detective in the Blue Moon Agency when looking back on other cases) she actually solves the case...with the help of her on again off again boyfriend Herbert of course. Have to admit I like Curtis Armstrong's Herbert Viola better than his character Booger on Revenge of the Nerds. Mostly because the writers gave Herbert a calmer attitude and that was a step away from the brashness of his Nerds character. It made him more appealing to me. Not to say Booger isn't a good character. He's memorable and funny but we already have that kind of character on Moonlighting with David Addison. I think the writers have tried to give Alice Beasley's character Agnes a little more bravery and much more straight forwardness when it comes to Herbert. I didn't think she would throw herself on Herbert when they first met like they did but here it was acceptable because she was frightened when she jumped into his arms and he was the only other person in the room. If she would have done it with David or Maddie now that would have been even funnier! lol! This was a good episode and now that we have another growing relationship between Agnes and Bert this gives the main leads some time off which some fans may gawk at but these two are cute none-the-less. Understandable their characters probably get more air time when the problems between Cybill and Bruce occur and with the pregnancy and collar bone (Bruce) incidents but if the stories are as entertaining as this one then I won't mind. Been a while since I've seen the whole series so we will see what happens next. Nice to rediscover the series after many years. "When there's something strange in the neighborhood! Who ya gonna call? ...Bert and Agnes?! :D
