    What we have in "Night of the Infernal Machine" is a rehash of elements from other (and better) episodes. We've seen the inventive use of bombs, such as in wind-up toys, before from Dr. Loveless in Season 1, and the idea of a lesser politico plotting to kill off his rivals for power was seen just in the previous episode. Add to that a claustrophobic story (most of the action takes place in the hotel) and a pair of lame villains, and this one never gets off the ground. No wonder CBS delayed airing it.



    There are some good moments - Artie disguised as the pastry chef, and his feud with the cook is good for a few laughs.moreless
