Folks, since so many decades I watch thousands of TV episodes and big and small screen movies, I have never seen this. I don't know if it was made in purpose - maybe yes, maybe not - but it is really amazing. Such as this editing performance in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, when the police force makes the assault against the criminal's house, whilst the audience thinks of Hannibal Lactor's one...And you suddenly realize that it is finally the OTHER house that it is about...AMAZING. Here, concerning the first minutes of this episode, it is nearly the same scheme. You see people in a gambling room, playing roulette and cards...You think it is in a casino. One of the characters takes a phone and you see him speak to a man in a truck cabin. So far, nothing special. Next sequence, one of the gamblers is Peeper who goes to the women's room, to talk on her micro hidden in her Under ware; she speaks to her pal, who is in a car. Then and only then, you realize that the gambling room is IN THE TRUCK TRAILER, a big semi trailer. I repeat, I don't know if it was made on purpose by Barry Shear, a sort of visual trick, for the fun and unusual amusement, but me, I was tricked. It was literally struck by this editing scheme. And I love this, especially in such an ordinary TV episode from a so ordinary TV show. For the rest, nothing really special.
