Dick reconnects with Corinne Denby
12 July 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Dick is visiting Michael when he is put in a sanitarium, there he finds Corinne Denby, the cranky illustrator he previously worked with.

An Ok episode, some amusing moments with some edgy humor about mental illness. Michael had a breakdown in the last episode and this is the result of that. Stephanie visits him and finds Michael has a creepy roommate who put his girl friend in a car trunk. There are some amusing scenes with Dick, Joanna and George being nervous about Corinne (Eileen Brennan) when they sign her out of the sanitarium but later find out she is a firebug.
