Do we really need Julie?
6 November 2014 | by stones78See all my reviews

This is one of the first of many episodes starring Wendy Schaal as Julie, who's basically a female Tattoo, and all dressed in white. I'm not sure if it was for ratings or not, but I don't think she was needed, unless Tattoo was being phased out. Schaal certainly wasn't bad in her role, but I feel it's too many cooks in the kitchen type of deal. Anyway, the most interesting aspect is the last appearance of Mephistopheles, played brilliantly by Roddy McDowell again, as he attempts to take over Mr. Rourke's soul. A year earlier in 1980, McDowell starred as the same character, but was thwarted by Rourke in what I think was the better segment, although this was still a solid story too; an odd coincidence has Arte Johnson starring in the other fantasies of both episodes. I'll get to Johnson's segment in a minute, but regarding the "Devil", I thought the claiming of souls got a bit confusing, and he should've known that Rourke would foil him again. I did like how he possessed Julie though, and how he exits the island and warning of his return, although it never happened again. The other weaker story stars Johnson, Jack Elam, and Cameron Mitchell, in a segment revolving around a shoe salesman(Johnson)wanting to meet a famous outlaw, and this is where Tattoo makes a small appearance, although their becoming less and less as the show ages.
