    Weakest episode was the Revenge episode, it was a little too ridiculous. Weakest cast member(s) were most of the 1989-90 cast except for Christian, Chris Bickford, Carlos and Jennifer.

    Easy answer: Throw a dart at '89-90. Try to miss "Time" and Jennifer Brackenbury, both of which were decently funny, but don't try to wade through the morass of that awful epoch, unworthy of the YCDTOTV name, in an effort to pick out the worst of the worst.

    (Even easier answer: Any episode, character or cast member introduced after the date of this post!)

    Serious answer: Confining ourselves to the Christine McGlade era (as Roger Price should have done), it's tempting to pick the old standby "War," which proves once again that good politics don't necessarily make good art. I also have always believed that there is a special place in hell for the truly ugly "Pets," in which six adult males write a sinkful of "dog" jokes for two teenaged girls to lob at each other. But ultimately I'll go with "Saint Patrick's Day," or whatever it's called, from the otherwise charming first season. Not only is it wilfully, perversely unfunny, but it introduces, as a major "character," the virus - green slime - in which was contained the seeds of the show's slow destruction, thus making it the only Christine-era episode of which it can truly be said that, without it, the world would be a better place.
    "Now me, I play for fortune
    And those velvet curtain calls
    I've got a black limousine and two gentlemen
    Escorting me to the halls
    And I'll play if you have the money
    Or if you're a friend to me
    But the one-man band
    By the quick-lunch stand
    He was playing real good
    For free..."

    I kind of wish Angie the Talking Doll had been lured into a van with promises of candy. That character is just... yeah.

    Always liked her myself, despite the troubling whiff of minstrelsy inherent in the premise. I wish she were on hand today to deliver a few of her home truths to the powers that be. ("Hey, Angie, should we try to make a new show?," etc.)

    War can MAYBE be excused by the atmosphere in 1984.... a bunch of paranoid, fearful old men in both the Kremlin and the White House. Enemies in 86 is less excusable as Gorbachev was in power by then.
