Show Me the Money!
21 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story reminded me of some of those Outer Limits episodes where the character was doomed from the beginning, based on a circumstance over which he had little control. The young man in this story was along for the ride when a huge amount of money was stolen. Since that day it was thought that he knew the location of the fortune. You see, the money was never found and now he is out of prison. He makes the mistake of accepting a room from the mother of one of his cellmates instead of going to a halfway house for parolees. Nehemiah Persoff plays the blue collar brother of the other prisoner who tortures the young man, making his life miserable. He even sends a couple of toughs to nearly beat the young man to death. We would like to see him succeed, but the deck is really stacked and there's still all that money. This is a pretty good episode and worth the time.
