Re: Short Fuse

Even though it's entertaining, it's hard to get used to Roddy McDowall playing a really trendy-looking character, in this case an early ' 70s one. Even in the movie THE SUBTERRANEANS, where he plays a beatnik character, he doesn't have the beret and goatee and so on. But everything about Rodger shouts "early '70s" (or at least the usual image people have of it). Even that honor society medal looks more like a trendy medallion (which might be one reason the story has him wearing it all the time).

Exactly, I didn't think about it before but you don't like almost anyone in this episode :)
