  • One of the weaker UCB episodes

    7.2
    Although I gave this an above-average score, it is only due to the glimmers of occasional brilliance and not to the overall plot, which was generally weak.



    The moments with Ron, the grimly unpeppy weatherman, were very funny. Other skits (like the interminable Ya-Ya dialogue, which most consisted of screaming and "Oh Papa!" ) seemed to be inserted to bulk out the flimsy hurricane pretext.
