This episode would have been a great season cliff-hanger. What a shame that it turned into the series finale when the show wasn\'t picked up for a Tenth Season.
The biggest problems with this two-parter occured in the second part, but even here in Part One there are a number of obvious problems with far too many things being crammed into a short a time. Harry\'s sudden good fortune becomes overly ridiculous and Mel Torme\'s appearance here ruined the perfect conclusion to his arc with Harry earlier in the season. The political run story has been done twice before with greater laughs with Dan. And the plot here with Dan\'s dream girl being the daughter of a former lover whose heart he broke is surprisingly touching but it fits poorly with the farcical nature of everything else in the episode.
