  • Stupid Ending!

    5.0
    Maddie and David are hired to find a wife for a 39 year old man. Both argue whether they should take the case at first as usual then decide to each find a woman for him to see which one he'll choose. Too bad the man had other plans. Use one of the women to kill in a car crash so he could collect life insurance from the fake wife he made up two year earlier and marry the other woman and bring her in on the plan. The episode goes from okay to just plain stupid as it continues. I love this show but the ending is beyond nonsense. I know this is suppose to be a screwball comedy romance mystery series but please. The writers could have at least made this have a little more sense. I did love the little breaking the fourth wall moments that David makes though. Example: He looks at the camera and tells the audience to try the tongue twister he just said and "I figured it out during the commercials." That ending though. All the show wanted to do was make ANOTHER crazy chase scene at the end. David could have easily left Maddie and caught the bad guys without the stupid wheelchair chase. Oh well, it was the 80s and it was a different time and I really shouldn't be complaining knowing how this series ended. These episodes were their highlight years compared to later. Sadly.moreless
