A Two-Part Episode Stretched Too Thin
14 February 2015 | by vitorussSee all my reviews

The second part of "Tyger, Tyger" is frankly a little dull and padded. At one point, people set up a movie projector and we watch surfing movies for what feels like minutes and then later, Kildare, Pat and a group of surfers sit around a campfire while Kildare croons a song.

The one thing going for this episode is Yvette Mimieux's excellent performance (she gives her all to her numerous grand Mal seizures). There's also beefcake and cheesecake when Mimieux dons a bikini and Chamberlain gets into tight white bathing trucks to go surfing. (Robert Logan and Clu Gulager provide excellent eye candy on the beach too.)

But, there's very little development of Anjanette Comer's alcoholic character over the length of two episodes. At first, she seems to be auditioning for the part of Neely O'Hara in "Valley of the Dolls" and she lets out at least three blood-curdling screams that any screen queen would envy. But, there's nothing for her to play here.

The excellent Clu Gulager is also left with nothing to do after it looked like he was being set up as a love rival between Kildare and Pat Holmes. He shaves his beard and then there's no big scene between his character and Pat.

There's so many scenes of surfing stock footage it almost makes you think they bought ten minutes of footage and were going to show every minute of it.
