I've voted 5, because although enjoying this the first time round, when I watched it again yesterday I became very agitated at the lack of D&M and had to do things to stop myself from falling asleep (ok please don't throw stuff at me, I don't usually fall asleep during ML). Agnes and Bert are great don't get me wrong (love the Exorcist bit at the doorway) but the chemistry that usually keeps me totally engaged - reagardless of the plot - just isn't there. The usual comments really. Have I done this post somewhere else? I have a strange feeling of deja vu, but have no idea what I've written and where I've written it. Senile dementia at the age of 26, so sad........
I voted 7. I enjoyed this now more than I did when I first saw it. I liked the attrition between Agnes and Bert. It's easy to understand how she feels, and amusing to watch Bert try to carry off the Dave role, while getting his comeuppance as he finds he's not quite as suave as he thinks. Both of them get yelled at by the 'Mom and Dad' supervisors, then they get paid anyway. Also, I liked the characters of the family at the house. They did very well for support cast, I thought. So, bearing in mind that episoes like this are bound to be different from the routine ones, I found it a likeable effort. ;D
I watched this ep for the first time just a few weeks ago. (Just the fact that there was something ML-ish I had never seen before made me exited.) And it was a good, funny and a little scary. I vote 5.
A slackly paced, lazily written mess. Bert and Agnes plus ghosts should've been a no-brainer, slam dunk but there's nary a laugh (or thrill) to be had in what could be the most dull episode of TV to take place in a haunted house. This episode also has the distinction of featuring Bruce and Cybill at their most automatic, shamelessly watching the clock whilst bantering. Personally I would take a 100% D/M free episode like "Here's Living With You Kid" over an episode with phoned in performances like this any day. They're not cameos guys, you still need to try!
