Pink Lady... and Jeff “The Lost Episode” (part 1 of 2)
Note from the Webmaster: Check out our all-new Pink Lady… and Jeff series page to read Michael’s recaps of all six episodes of this show!
Well, this is it. This is the brass ring, kiddies!
Since I started the final episode by comparing this show to a more successful one, I can think of no better way to kick off the actual final episode than by repeating myself shamelessly.
Although, I think the metaphor is much more apt this time around, since upon closer inspection, the six episodes of Pink Lady and Jeff seem to match up almost perfectly with the six episodes that make up Tales from the Crypt’s first season. The first episode was classic and still implanted firmly in your consciousness even though it first aired decades ago, the third episode, while incredibly goofy, is still enjoyable due largely to good use of unusual casting choices and sheer pandering. The remaining episodes are largely hit and miss, except for the sixth, which is so incredibly stupid it invokes the opposite emotion of the one it was intended to.
“Oh, come on,” you’re thinking, “that’s sort of a poor choice of a metaphor, wouldn’t you say?” To which I say, “It’s apt! Apt!”
Plus, I’m really just trying to talk up Tales from the Crypt. Incidentally, you should watch Tales from the Crypt. Also, I hate Scranton. And who are the Overlords of the UFO?
