  • A Weird But Quite Wonderful Episode This One With A Funny Sequence

    The standout moment for me in this episode is when the woman who does the wax people makes one of David and his reaction to it. Obviously, if the museum is opened and becomes sucessful then everyone will see David David isvery clever here by asking the lady to make him look like a one Davey.

    Also with JAck McGee in this has be to be careful too.......
  • Intriguing concept discounted by cheap effects and an ending you can see a mile away.

    Give episode writer Carol Baxter (who also previously guest starred in season two and four episodes "Haunted" and "Prometheus") credit for penning an intriguing plot. But a predictable twist ending and poor execution, including garish, cheap-looking sets and sub-par directing (the scene of Bixby's stunt double shuffling around in the scalding water is laughable), are a terrible drain on the episode. To make matters worse, the usually-strong guest cast can't even be counted on here: Max Showalter hams it up and Christine Belford hysterically chomps sugar pills at every chance. Dick Harwood previously directed season three's "Proof Positive," a much more successful outing. Here, he simply gets two carried away with the weirdness of the episode.

    And, unfortunately, it has become evident by this point in the series that we can't come up with any more creative or potent impetus for Banner's transformations than having him burned, scalded, strangled or nearly-drowned. A handful of truly chilling scenes and the typical reliability of Bill Bixby, Jack Colvin and composer Joe Harnell end up making it worthwhile.

    But, whether intended or not, this is a B-movie cheese-fest all the way through.moreless
