Another weak Night Gallery comic blackout sketch, shot for Season Two but unaired, “Room For One Less” is reviewed here.
“Room For One Less” *
Written and Directed by Jack Laird
Lee Jay Lambert as The Thing
James Metropole as The Elevator Operator
A crowded elevator stops to let in several more people into an already tightly-filled car, some of whom are turned away by the operator. We then see a large bulbous-headed creature, to whom the operator points out a sign saying “Occupancy by more than 10 passengers prohibited by law.”
The creature says in a sophisticated accent, “Quite,” and points a long-nailed finger at operator, shooting a laser and obliterating him.
Sigh. No comment necessary.
