Near the Bottom
18 August 2015 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

The boys are in St. Louis, where their apartment neighbor is a ragtime-piano-playing alcoholic who's neglecting his son. There's also something about a heist that's being planned.

I hate to say so, but this episode is greatly inferior to the usual quality. Think twice if you're planning to spend money on it. The script's a mess, barely generating interest, let alone suspense. The narrative just sort of rambles on. Plus, it looks like the unbelievable climax was tacked on for action's sake. But there's barely any lead up. Then too, what's with the big-time heist subplot that's simply left hanging. It's like they had to rush into production with a half- finished script and simply winged the rest. Not helping is Guardino's version of an alcoholic. His drunken spells are the lamest I've seen. On the other hand, little Mickey Sholdar does well enough as the neglected child, but he's about the only bright note, that is, aside from Buzz and Tod who aren't given much to work with. If this isn't the series's rock bottom, it's close. Too bad.
