It buries the prime-time soaps forever with an extremely funny and hilariously delivered script by two of the finest writers ever to grace the set of The Andy Griffith Show, it gives its cast rare good opportunities for brilliance that are fully enjoyed, it hews surprisingly close to John Candy’s SCTV line to the extent of seeming tailor-made for him, and when all that’s said and done, it’s an existential comedy in a Twilight Zone vein about captaining your own soul.
