Harry Anderson is the artist, suffering a case of artist’s block. His shrewish wife shows up and the office and accuses him of working Saturday to meet a bimbo at the office.
She also accuses him of not taking the potency pills he needs to get her pregnant. He says the non-FDA approved pills make his brain hurt, kickstarting the episode.
That night he sees a cutie at the laundromat. After he leaves, the lights go off and a thug begins to attack her. Turns out she is a cop, and she flips him to the floor. A monster crawls out of the washer and grabs him, biting his head off.
This is a little irresponsible as a monster does materialize in a warehouse where some kids are playing.
His wife busts him making a date with the cutie and he begins sketching her as a monster. Monster wife kills shrew wife and Anderson goes off with the cutie.
The episode is far, far less than the sum of its parts. Mostly a waste of some fun actors.
- Colleen Camp (the wife) was one of those sexy 1980’s chicks like Deborah Foreman — a welcome addition to any crappy movie. Maybe best remembered as the maid in Clue.
- Richard Schiff went on to be Toby in The West Wing.
