Comments: Not only does Clive Pettibone give the most lackluster marriage proposal to Muriel--He also deprives us of seeing a wedding that could have breathed life into this droning episode. What a jerk!

Comments: The penultimate episode of the series goes out with a bang. Olivia shines again and Jasper tells the villagers not to sell out to gadgets. I wonder if he would still hold this position if any of his gadgets actually sold?
