  • Another comical episode

    Is Philip Lasdown the predecessor to the infamous Doctor Zachary Smith of Lost In Space fame? Could be.

    Quick, sharp vernacular from the wealthy Philip L. make this episode rather entertaining though the first 5-10 minutes you are wondering whether this is going to be a classic episode or not. Once again missing are the be-bop jazz sounds and thrills of the shows' expected characteristics. Funny spots are when the cab driver kicks Philip's luggage down the stairs, the Asian, non English speaking butler and the line where Craig Stevens comments on bringing smelling salts to the antique shop owner Quimsby as he fills a lesser masculine profile.
