Jill Is Stalked
15 December 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Mike is due in court to testify against a burglar he arrested, the man's brother is seeking revenge by terrorizing Jill.

A good episode, starts off well but ends disappointingly. Kate Jackson is very good and Andy Robinson (the psycho sniper in Dirty Harry) is a convincing creepy stalker. There is good suspense as he calls her whistling Mary Had A Little Lamb and leaves a raw leg of lamb in Jill's cabinet. The ending is a bit of a letdown occurring in a speedway with a drawn out chase scene.
