[edit]

Synopsis: Naive, bookish Professor Post (of Potts College) inherits a huge amount of money and decides that now he can afford to go out and enjoy life.


Reaction: Not wonderful, and some of the gags don't work as well as they could, but Keaton is always great and the show on the whole is enjoyable.


Personal Rating: 6/10
