  • One of the best. A classic Thalia episode with great support from Maynard and Zelda.

    Probably my favorite Thalia episode. The premise is marvelous and exploits the characters' interplay marvelously. I also like that it directly pits Zelda against Thalia- Yin to the Yang, the great showdown of Dobie's love interests. No other female love objects (or whatever Zelda is) ever evolve the resonance these two do- here pitted one against the other.

    Highlights- Maynard making latin phrases into jazz scats. "Dicto simplicitor, dickie, dickie, do!" And is this the one where Dobie lies to Zelda about working at the YMCA pool? Well if not, that episode is good, too!

    Corrections welcome. As I watch these again I'll update my reviews.
