    KOKO !!!!

    Awesome episode, one of my all time faves. I felt so bad for Joseph. No two people deserved what they got more for what they did to him.

    Yagher was the perfect director for this one, for sure.

    Galligan's only memorable role since Gremlins.

    Rocks. 'Nuff said.

    I thought it was going to be a lighthearted episode at first...nope. I wasn't disappointed, though.

    This episode is up there with my all time favorites. The final scene used to give me nightmares as a kid. This episode was all around good but the ending scene is definately my favorite. I like how the officer says he's seen everything and the detective says "not like this you haven't." Then the creepy carnival music as the two are revealed to be strung up like puppets as you see Koko's evil smile is just priceless.

    OMG, Donald O'Connor!

    I swear, that was my first reaction to this episode when I first saw it. I loved O'Connor in "Singin' in the Rain", so it was a treat to see him here, older but still great as ever.

    Anyway, this was deeper than I thought it would be and had a delightfully gruesome ending. And man, that puppet is creepy.

    This is a great episode, I am surprised it is not talked about more. The casting of Zack Galligan was great as well. He was cool in the Waxwork movies.

    This is one of the better episodes with the clown stuff being downright creepy and the scenes with Joseph and Koko were intriguing. The evil clown, or puppets having a life of their own has been done numerous times, but this was a superior version to many others.


    The only downside was Joseph's wife; I found her character grating and really annoying. She didn't do enough to take away from the episode, and I guess if the producers wanted her to be a nagging shrew, mission accomplished!!
