Reactions and Reviews

What it is, is a nicely-turned sequel to the Playboy Island episode in which Starsky tries, none too success fully, to come to terms with his voodoo-induced attempt to kill Hutch. The slightly false note at the end is, I suspect, deliberate.[1]
Another Fine Mess didn't do much for me.[2]
Another Fine Mess—Another good gap-filler. It is well written and the little aside of Hutch drinking Starsky's scotch was a nice touch! [3]
Another Fine Mess - Please don't kill me, but something didn't click right or this one. Hutch's refusal to believe in voodoo was right on the money, but Starsky gave in too easily. I know, I know! It's supposed to be a short, short story, and I shouldn't expect a novella, but I can't help that.[4]
Another Fine Mess combined the more serious aspects of a just-as-soon-forgotten nightmare with that touch of lightness that pulled, it all together.[5]
