Frequently Asked Questions
Satch s brain gets a boost. but he s still an idiot!
At the beginning of the episode, Satch (Huntz Hall) gets electrocuted. But instead of dying, this is a Bowery Boys comedy and so that means that he s suddenly endowed with amazing computational skills. When he and Slip go to see a game show, Satch instantly knows who will be picked each time. After seeing him demonstrate this, Slip insists they head to Vegas to win a fortune in order to help a nice old lady they all know. However, Satch keeps finding ways to win huge fortunate. and then lose it. The second time is to a group of crooks who also convince Satch that he s killed someone–and if he just gives them the money, they ll tell the cops it was all an accident. By now you ve clearly noticed that although Satch s brain is changed, when it comes to common sense he s the same old dope he always was. And, once they get the money back, once again Satch figures out a way to lose it! Will they ever be able to get the money for the old lady? And, will Satch continue to possess extraordinary computational skills?
Overall, this is a very entertaining entry–much more than normal. My only complaint is that the Boys are getting pretty long in the tooth here. and it s no wonder as it came out towards the end of this VERY long series of B-films.
