| A very interesting, and funny episode.
In the first half of this episode, I was just staring at the TV wondering what was happening, then of course it hits you like a ton of bricks. This episode deals with a politician that likes to show off to the people, meeting a bellboy that tries to change his appearance. Over the episode, the politician slowly turns in to a clown. That's about it. There isn't much substance or plot to this, but it was very well directed, had some great over the top acting and it had a certain atmosphere that just worked perfectly. Not a classic, but a fun and clever idea done well.

My rating: Great episode. 21 mins. TV PG
