Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: - - - - IMDb: «Two nosy teenage boys suspect that the barbershop across the street is a front for a cult of vampires. Unfortunately for them, they may be right... A Shave and a Haircut, Two Bites has a pretty high novelty factor. It stars an undiscovered Matt LeBlanc, it's directed by John Strysik, who directed some of the most memorable episodes to come out of "Tales from the Darkside," it has perhaps the longest title of a Monsters episode, and it tells its story from a flashback perspective. With all of these unique points, how can it possibly go wrong? Believe me, it does. The acting is alright. Matt LeBlanc and Wil Wheaton do a good enough job here, though neither one of them have really been known for their acting prowess. The barbers, though they're not really featured much, exude at least a semi-creepy vibe. My problem is the story. Because of its flahsback format, it kind of lets the air out of the ending. It tries to establish some weird backstory about barbers initially being a guild of serial killers which, for all I know, might actually be true but it just sounds really far-fetched. They try to say that the revolving red swirls in the barber's pole represents blood. So what does the blue mean? The final revelation about the shop is just preposterous. The monster of the episode looks really silly. However, it did air right after "Small Blessings" so it must have looked fantastic by comparison. It's some kind of mini version of Jabba the Hut that sits in the basement and drinks human blood. It's still better than the vampire in "The Vampire Hunter," but not by much. The episode tries to be creepy and mysterious but it really doesn't jive. The only real reason to watch is if you're a big "Friends" fan and you want to see Joey's early beginnings».
