John Houseman and William Shatner
8 October 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Mork, Mindy and Mearth Meet MILT" opens with a surprise appearance from William Shatner, caught in Orson's transporter beam rather than his intended jacuzzi, Mork wondering if they're going to kill off Spock! Mearth's science project is a super computer that calls itself MILT, voiced by John Houseman, who congratulates Mindy on her Emmy nomination when she arrives home from work. MILT cooks dinner and essentially runs the McConnell home in stunning fashion, expanding its range with great rapidity. On the evening when the awards are to be announced, Mork and Mindy are prevented from leaving when MILT holds them imprisoned. Mork tries to reason with the inhuman MILT: "this is a big night for Mindy, she waxed both legs!" MILT even impersonates Mindy's voice in a call to her father. Both Mork and Mearth try to use their powers on MILT, only to see it deflect them at a wall painting. The only time they have any privacy is in the shower, with Mork asking to hurry before they run out of hot water. MILT's Achilles heel is revealed to be a poor sense of humor, while Mork's report to Orson is about human dependence upon machines, echoing the plot of 1977's "Demon Seed," in which Julie Christie is imprisoned in her own home by a super computer voiced by Robert Vaughn. This was a reunion between Romanian-born John Houseman, former Mercury Theater co-founder with Orson Welles, and his former student at Julliard, Robin Williams.
