A Tale of Two Sweeties – February 25, 1968

Sam leaps into Marty Elroy, a bigamist and small-time gambler who’s bad with money.

Sam’s two families have converged in Pompano Beach, Florida. While he attempts to juggle his responsibilities between Marty’s two families, he must pick which one to stay with – and Ziggy says each has a 50/50 chance of being the right choice.

We discuss an episode that has a lot of potential in its premise, but ultimately gets lost in a largely unlikable leapee, lazy jokes, and sloppily executed comedy. But we also call out the highlights: Al’s outfits, Al’s heart-to-heart moments with Marty’s child, Jessica, and a few comedic moments that do manage to land.
