Enjoyable and quite silly
22 June 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The show begins on location. A mummy movie is being filmed and all is well. However, the actor playing the mummy learns that his wife is in labor and he rushes to the hospital. In his haste, he doesn't change and since he looks very real, folks along the way are scared to death to see what they think is a live mummy! To add to the confusion, a REAL mummy!

This episode has a paper-thin story and no depth whatsoever. However, this doesn't really matter because it IS fun--a lot of fun. Compared to the previous mostly poor episodes, this is a VAST improvement in the show and is one that has aged better than most episodes as well. Worth seeing and incredibly silly.
