Storyline

John Forbes own a used car lot and business has been very slow. He only has one employee, whom he calls Dad, and has always assured him that no matter what, he will always take care of him. John's real problem is his extravagant wife who has just told him that she will be going on an expensive trip. When the opportunity presents itself, he takes care of the matter in a decisive way and with Dad's assistance, covers up his deeds. As the police bear down on him, John must determine who he will take care of first. Written by garykmcd

Old Doesn't Mean Stupid
3 February 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

City dweller Forbes (Meeker) with aging helper (Collins) runs a struggling used car lot, while supporting an unappreciative wife (Fraser).

So, how are those rowdy teenagers going to figure into things and what's with the shrewish wife. Fifteen minutes into the entry and I'm still not sure where it's going, but knowing Hitch, I know there'll be a good payoff. And there is.

One secret of the series success is expert casting. Getting the cocksure Meeker, sly old Collins, and everybody's grandma Moore, helps energize the episode. There're also a couple of good touches. Using a real car lot instead of a studio set lends good local color. But what I really like are the carnival crowds. Director Stevens could have just let the extras walk through the scenes. But he doesn't. Instead he or someone devised little bits of crowd business that are fun and colorful—like the two teens stuffing themselves like teens.

Catch that last delicious scene with its twist on a twist and so sweetly done too. Good sneaky episode.
