    Route 66 is usually overly serious. This episode really through me for a loop. A Mermaid!? After episodes about disabled men bused women a show a mermaid seemed to come from no place. But in form it was played straight and serious. And that fact made this a stand out episode. The underwater photography was great the performance as always were great as well. Diane Baker (Elissa) our mermaid came off very well. Making us never sure till the end whether she was a real mermaid or just believed she was one. Defiantly the oddest episode I have seen yet.moreless
