But, my god, that sitcom "Babes" itself was vile!
At the very least, I think, we can all agree on that.

I just watched The Enemy Within again, and it's not quite as bad as I remember. At the time it initially aired I think I just couldn't get past the B-movie silliness of the alien creatures, but there's some good stuff there. A bulk of the film was stuff writers Frolov and Schneider had wanted to do for years: the Eenos were supposed to be introduced in the episode "Gimme Gimme" and the Albert and May story was in the original "Body and Soul" script. The role reversal, with George as the bigot and Matt as the defender of the oppressed, was interesting.

It's still my least favorite of the movies, but I'll take the worst of AN over the best of most shows today.
