That’s really all I can say about this episode. I’m speechless. Everything that needed saying was most definitely said -- again and again and again. It will probably be on my list of top three most amazing episodes of all time.
There is something about Dorinda’s house…maybe it's the schizophrenic decor? One room is Victorian, another Mid-evilish, another is Hello Kitty inspired and at the end of the hall hangs a blue plastic marlin circa 1950s Key West. A sort of Animal House meets Hot Tub Time Machine.
The Billiard Room, The Blue Room, The Attic Room, The Dining Room, The Black Hall -- all with wallpapered closets! You can argue in one room then sneak through a secret passage to another. It reminds me of the game Clue. So I asked my good pal and cartoonist, Laurie Sandell, to draw us all up as Clue — each with our appropriate weapon.
Which of us will be murdered in the Billiard Room? Who of us will get out alive? Will Dorinda ever have a drama-free party? Who spilled their lasagna in the Ballroom? Tune in next week to find out.
