Storyline

Eddie Turtin discovers that his friend and business partner, Charlie Osgood, has fraudulently defalcated at least $60,000 from their company, and warns him that if he does not repay the money promptly, criminal charges will be pressed that should result in a 35-year prison sentence. Charlie concocts a plan with his girlfriend Danielle to fake his death, placing a dummy in public view on a pier. The dummy appears to jump suicidally, then a violent explosion destroys the body. Charlie and Danielle plan to abscond with $89,000 stowed in a company filing cabinet. Charlie meets Danielle to collect the stash, then they celebrate with a bottle of Eddie's liquor. Danielle is now in cahoots with Eddie, and the liquor is poisoned. Eddie and Danielle return to the same pier to dispose of Charlie. Written by Lew Amack

Erratic
2 October 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

This erratic entry's mainly a matter of taste. All in all, the series's patented black humor is spread on more thickly than usual. Hill plays against type, being something of an amusing bumbler. His Charlie Osgood has cooked the books, gypping partner Eddie (Anderson) out of thousands of dollars. Charlie schemes to fake his death and run off with ditsy blonde Danielle (Moore). Still, it looks like Eddie's no one to mess with, so Charlie better not slip up.

One good thing is that it's hard to guess what the ironic upshot will be. Then too, the upshot's pretty satisfying, and shows why justice-served was wisely postponed to Hitch's wrap-up. That way we get the irony's full flavor on screen. On the downside, I wish someone had re-thought Eddie's silly eulogy—it's way over the top, beyond the rest of the hour. Anyway, Hill struggles manfully with Charlie's comedic character, showing why the actor specialized in dramatic parts, instead. Moore, however, is in a groove with Danielle's sexy air-head. Overall, whether there're enough pluses to make the erratic entry worthwhile is mainly up to the viewer. For me, it was a close call.
