| Nice touches in an interesting episode
A famous dance teacher is poisoned, supposedly by voodoo poison. Rex investigates at the request of the man's daughter and gets caught up in voodoo, and a hypnotist who casts a spell on the dancer's granddaughter.

The voodoo angle is appealing, especially the voodoo ceremony and definitely the dancers at the ceremony - a man and a woman who can really dance and who sadly go uncredited. They were terrific. Another nice touch - at the end, when Rex uses voodoo ingredients to invent another Rex Randolph gourmet dish and his friends desert him rather than eat it, Rex breaks the fourth wall as he digs in, and winks at the camera. Richard Long got a lot of milage out of that wink, in a lot of series and appearances.
