    A nice sendup of American survivalist nutnik types, with Mantegna having a field day playing it to the hilt as the man waiting deep down below the surface of the earth for his opposable thumbs to finally grow in. Contains one of the alltime great twisteroo endings; okay, so maybe the purported accident isn't entirely believable, but it certainly serves as a fitting capper (haha) to the events, and the wife's final smirking comment seems more than a bit sinister. Besides all of which, we get to see Danica McKellar a year or so before she became Winnie Cooper! :)moreless

    I love this episode, i dont know if it is the whole nuclear war tension or the underground shelter with lots of cool technologies. No, i don't think is that, maybe it is the ending, no, no, it can't be that. I was enjoying this very much even when i haven't seen the ending., oh yeah, now i remember. My fascination comes from the fact that all the time i was thinking that somebody was going to steal Harry his very special bunker and left him outside during a nuclear attack, well, it turned out the other way. I also loved the bunker itself, pretty well made. The scene in which Harry goes flying when the explosion occurs is very well done too. A great episode.moreless
