Storyline

Paul Steppe, a watch repairman, suspects his wife is cheating on him while he tends to his store every afternoon. Consumed with jealousy, he devises a time bomb set to go off at four o' clock - the same time her "lover" pays his daily visit. One day, when his wife is at the market, he sneaks into the house to plant the device. There, Paul is surprised by two burglars, who tie him up and gag him - leaving him at the mercy of his own device ticking away. Written by alfiehitchie

This episode has the alternative title Pris au Piège . . .
12 April 2014 | by realthogSee all my reviews

. . . but unfortunately IMDb currently has no facility for adding alternative titles for TV episodes. So I'm putting it here. And now I have to work this up to a full ten lines.

The episode is carried almost entirely by actor E.G. Marshall, who plays a watchmaker suspicious that his wife's being unfaithful, sets a booby trap for her and her supposed lover, and then finds himself through force of circumstance in position to be the booby trap's victim. How will he get out of this? It's not often you see Marshall carrying a movie's burden, but he makes a pretty good fist of it here -- although his voice-over work (much of the dialogue comprises the watchmaker's thoughts) seems a little artificial. Very well worth watching, though.
