Enough plot for two episodes
8 October 2018 | by saps48See all my reviews

The two plot lines would have each made a better episode if developed on their own: the sisters switching personalities under hypnosis is rich with possibilities, and the return of the neurotic Father Lundigan nearly writes itself. But here, both stories are underwritten and neither reaches its comic potential. (Weird to critique a 50-year-old episode, but oh well...)
