  • Very interesting in terms of showing more of the dynamic between Gomez and Morticia. Good for development of Fester's character. Marred slightly by Queen Helen's voice, which is quite annoying.

    An interesting episode, featuring much of the main cast in different roles. This episode really gives a good look at how Morticia and Gomez's relationship works, as shown in how they explain it to King Lester. It also shows how their relationship is the type that others would want, as Lester hopes to emulate it with his own wife.

    Especially touching is Fester's hesitant decision at the end to give up Queen Helen, whom he had fallen in love with. He chooses to pretend he had never met her for the King's benefit. Although he has previously been shown as selfish, this really shows Fester's selfless side.

    The episode is marred only slightly by Ellie Harvie's Queen Helen. While I normally love Ellie, I found she did quite a poor job on Helen's accent, making the character more annoying than anything. It seems she was trying her best to make her voice sound as different from Morticia's as possible, but the result was not that good.

    Overall, a wonderful episode which shows the many sides of Uncle Fester.moreless
