Mike breaks Archie's chair
6 April 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

After Mike accidentally breaks Archie's chair, it is sent to a store for repairs but it gets sent to an art gallery by mistake.

Archie's chair has become almost another character in the show by this time, so the writers decided to give it a show of it's own. It doesn't totally work but it has some amusing bits to make it an OK episode. Michael Pataki (he played Sgt Roselli in The Taxi Caper episode) appears as a devious modern artist trying to get Archie to sell him the chair.
