Forgettable Thriller
29 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Jack Carson stars as recovering alcoholic Burt Lewis, who one day is summoned to a motel room by his charter boat business partner Ethel(played by Jeannie Cooper) after a body was found there, likely a murder victim. Burt finds out that the victim was a man looking into his past, and this involves Burt in a most complicated criminal scheme involving several different people that may just push Burt into jail, an early grave, or back to the booze... Aptly titled episode is among the weakest, with an absurdly over-complicated plot that fails to maintain viewer interest; exactly the kind of crime episode that series fans didn't want!
