Stuart, Kookie and their respective dates are among those Russian restaurateur Yegor Danilov has invited to a small party on Friday night in honor of the highly publicized acquisition of a tapestry - an old family heirloom that used to hang in the family's summer home in St. Petersburg when he was a child - which he has now hung behind the desk in his office. The four are aware that Danilov's story behind the tapestry is all fiction in order to bring publicity to the restaurant as they were in the restaurant the night when he acquired it from a Mrs. Jennings aka the former Countess Natalia Dombroska - the tapestry her family heirloom - Danilov ultimately loaning her $1,000 in her need for money while he holds the tapestry until she can pay him back.

Golden tapestry affair
12 November 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Nothing special in this routine episode, flat and uninspired. An old Russian refugee arrives to the USA with a priceless tapestry named Honey From the Bees, which is also searched by a bunch of evil guys from eastern Europe. Boring, even with this ever sweet atmosphere and music score. This time the eastern Europe perfume is on the loose for this episode. I guess the producers wanted to put some tone from over there without bringing our heroes in Russia. So expect to hear some violin sounds from time to time. Only for die hard fans of the series. But for me, I will forget it very rapidly.

One more time, directed by George Waggner.
