  • Wow, the gorilla suit was all the rage in the mid-70s.

    Several months after the opening of the Jessica Lange remake of King Kong comes this enemy-gorilla episode (with a line about King Kong thrown in for laughs). Quite silly from start to finish, but the cast seems to be having a lot of fun with it. Prestigious actors like John Hillerman and Robert Loggia are having to work with a man in a gorilla suit, so you know they made the most of the whole thing. Even Waggoner delivers some ridiculous lines with the utmost seriousness. It's fun to watch the episode and imagine that after each scene, when the director yells "cut", everyone on the set bursts out laughing. The acting is fine but there are some truly bad performances from Gretchen Corbett and Tom Reese - I suppose they do the best they can with the less-than-steller script. This episode marks the beginning of Carter really having confidence with the spin - no more checking to see if she's got all of her accessories: From now on she thinks, she spins, she's Wonder Woman.
