Love me two times

I would hesitate to call this episode a very strong one, but there were some interesting moments to help make up for the lack of bite that I look for when watching this nostalgic show. The most redeeming aspect was the straight performance of Rich Little(Herbert Costigan), whose fantasy is to be an important attorney, although he didn't expect to defend himself in a murder case in which he's the accused. Look for familiar faces in Mary Ann Mobley(Pamela Deering)and Sal Viscuso. Even though this was the better of both segments, nothing too memorable happened here, though Little's performance was commendable, and I wasn't aware he even tried serious acting before, but it worked to an extent here. The other story has an annoying character(Larry Barbour)played by Ken Berry, and his wish is to basically have affairs with two lovely women, and it turns out that "both" of these women(Dina & Nina McKay)are twin sisters, played by Karen Caye. To those paying attention, when we first see her, she's wearing a Jack Youngblood Rams football jersey, which I was a big fan of in those days. Anyway, you can guess how much of a mess Larry gets himself into, especially when the twins figure out the deal, and the ending of this segment wasn't exactly satisfying, and I didn't buy that she would fall for him as they leave the island together. Like I said above, this isn't a particularly strong episode, as neither story did too much for me, but it still has charm, and there's another scene with Tattoo disco dancing, which can be quite frightening in itself, but times were different then.
