Not a great episode but a good one.
3 February 2011 | by drchilledairSee all my reviews

Strikes me as a tad odd that once-upon-a-time film star, Millicent Martin, should have a good half-dozen lines in the this episode and yet receive no screen credit. Also, there was a child actor listed in the credits, and I spotted none in the episode. Be that as it may, Betty White is, as director Frank Tashlin once remarked of Tony Randall, "a comedy machine." My favorite "Hot" episode ever was the one where Mallick's character does a Japanese TV commercial for "Lady Pants," i.e, an adult diaper. Fall down funny Japanese text on the screen during the comml. That episode was a 10. Whe one where Valerie B. opened the door to Wayne Knight's character and seemed to adlib the line, "Hellllllo, Newman was also a good one.
