Decent story - a real-life publication creating "monstrous" results, blending reality with fiction. Sort of a funny story, Harry's wife is a gigantic bitch, which he illustrates well towards the end.

Slightly above average episode for me, '6'.

I just finished watching this and was thinking '6', not sure what I rated it previously. Looks to be the same, but it's a strong '6'. I agree, the monsters are pretty awesome and I love watching them come to life. I think this is down a notch or two for me because of the comedic nature. Now, that may seem ridiculous because I know the whole series is 'comic book-like' and dark humor runs amok. However, as in TZ, which is referenced in this BTW, I don't tend to enjoy the comedic ones. The hokey comedy/humor here isn't to my liking. The wife is too cartoonish, in her wardrobe as well as her mannerisms and speech. Occasionally the dialogue is weak. I still enjoy the monsters and the outcome. Cynthia Gibb looks damn sexy too.

6.
