  • I was not crazy about this episode, but the man who played the "bum" did a very good job. However, for some reason it didn't tickle my fancy.

    At the opening of the show, Lamont and Fred find a transient sleeping on their property. After they cater to him for a day, Lamont and Fred are more than ready for him to leave. However, several hours later they find him sleeping in an empty bathtub outside. This time Lamont and Fred are not pleased and try to get him out in a hurry. During the rush, the "bum" hurts himself on their property and the Sanford's become worried that he may try to sue them. So, Fred and Lamont become stuck with their unwanted tenant for a while longer. The man who plays the "bum" character does a great job of acting like a wino (drunk). But all in all, the show lacked that certain lovable quality that their better episodes have.moreless
