Dustin Diamond's performance in this episode is just dire, and truly some of the worst acting ever to be broadcast on a television. It's clear the producers wanted a quirky kid who could pull funny faces, and weren't bothered that he spends every scene waiting for his cue and switching 'off' the instant he's said his lines. Look at you, the thirty-something adult, shitting all over a twelve year old. It's true, I am a big man.

He didn't want to harm Nicholas Wilson, who was playing Sir Henry Baskerville. In fact, the bloody dog had fallen in love with Nicholas. Someone had the notion of hiding sausages under the lapels of Nic's dinner jacket, but it was of no use: The dog actually appeared to be blowing kisses at Nic. And then, a member of the camera crew suggested that, 'why didn't we throw Nic at the dog, and then run the film backwards?' Nic Wilson was not amused, but I was.

We don’t want her home with the baby.”

At the last minute, Bond sees the shark and swims away. Very slowly. And the shark just kind of ambles along after him. Here’s a tip for all you burgeoning supervillains: if you want your pet shark to devour your enemy, you might want to make sure it’s actually hungry first.

AHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! The dog got a better review than James Franco. I almost want to fly to NYC just to see this, because I’m sure I would get high off of the smoke coming out of James’ ears when during curtain call, the crowd stands up and throws bouquets of milk bones at the dog. Here’s James Franco, Chris O’Dowd and Blair Waldorf at the Of Mice and Men after-party and they really kept themselves together as the photographers screamed, 'But where’s THE DOG?!'

Poor Kim Manners. An excellent director left with the unfortunate job of having to make fluffy cats look scary... Worse, Mulder turns his flashlight on the pussy army from hell and they all look as if they would rather be somewhere else. I swear I could see one licking its arse. Ooh scary.
