The George, of the title, is the only character to possibly root for and that's not the point at all. It's not the actors' fault though neither can breath either sympathy or interest into their roles. Even Culp who can usually add some life to anything can't bring anything to this one.

The characters are uninteresting snobs. Not wicked enough to hate but the better way would have been to put you in their shoes which the show never does. It has nothing interesting or black comedy worth saying about Hollywood either.

The story is protracted or lack of story really. The central situation isn't exploited for any suspense and the ending, if it makes sense or no, doesn't add anything very compelling.

Flatly directed and shot, if you did see and forget this episode it's no wonder. If you haven't perhaps re-watch a great one instead. Hitchcock wrap around is worth a look but skip the rest of it.
