This is an episode that gets better the more times you see it. The first time I was anticipating a "regular" episode and was dissappointed that it wasn´t Maddie and David. But I gave it a shot and got hooked! Now I have to give it a 9, since it didn´t do anything for me the first time i watched it. Love it now, though!
Good one! Like mlbestshowever menioned, those signs were apsolutely excelent! But I didnt't gave 10 becouse it should be detective show. More and more it becomes D&M love story (which is also good, but I just think they could keep the original idea - detective stories)
I vote 10 for this episode because it brought me so many memories that I've forgotten through the time. Even though I always read this forum, this is my first posting, my english is not good, but I will do my best. I've been a Moonlighting fan since I was a teenager and I remember I had an obsession for this series. I am from Ecuador and I saw the entire series in spanish during the 80's and 90's. However, it's good to watch the episodes in english since we loose a lot a things with translations. By the way, this series was called "Mi loco oficio" instead Moonlighting. Translated to english is something like "My crazy job".
It must sounds crazy, but I used to have dreams with Maddie and David and me being part of the episode. I clearly remember now that I dreamt I was dancing with David the Good lovin' sequence. The dreams was becoming nightmares because since I couldn't wait a whole week for the next episode, I was unconsciously creating new episodes. I was so surreal because then I wasn't sure if an episode was real or I dreamt it.
Anyway, fortunately I overcame this obsession and now I am only a big fan. I will keep watching the rest of episodes and giving my two cents here when I have an opportunity.
In the commentaries, Glenn mentions several times how lowly ranked this episode was. While I didn't turn it off, I know that I would have been happier (at the time) if it had had Maddie and David opening and closing scenes. As it was, the opening gave this episode the feel of an educational film or after school special. So much so that even when I watch it now, I find myself thinking they should do a special DVD for schools, then I remember the jokes and think, well, no...
It is just incredible that 1980's episodic prime-time television could create something so rich. It is a 10.
Another one i didnt rate: This episode is pure brilliance! How amazing this episode is! We get Shakespeare, cool costumes,M/D kisses, David singing and M/D in bed , ok not really M/D but you get my drift LOL This episode is a definite 10 from me!
Actually this is one of my least favourite episodes .. I just don't like that stuff, I just want Maddie & David!! & Shakespear is lame .. I dunno, it just wasn't my thing I guess .. but at least they were together, not like the horrible episodes of season4!
