  • Sort-of liked this show - LOVED this ep!

    While most 'Small Wonder' eps are OK 'gimmick' shows, this one shines and in fact beats out every other 'gimmick' show, even ones from the legendary 60's. Because it did something no other such show ever did. Did Samantha cast a spell to make the Kravitzes move? Did Tony have Jeannie put a mental block on Doctor and Mrs. Bellows? Did Martin and Tim O'Hara file a harassment lawsuit with the LA PD against Detective Brennan? No! But the Lawsons at least tried to use Vicki to get rid of the Brindles.

    Yes, we knew they wouldn't, or if they did, new nosey neighbors would move in, etc. But who cares? After all those years of TV land immunity for people with a stalker mentality and flagrant disregard for decency and privacy, the doormat victims strike back! Just to see the targeted ones even try this keeps this just-OK series fond in my memories forever. Take that, wakcy neighbors!
