One of the better episodes of S1
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A number of episodes were set in working class environments, and this was one of them. Hot day, hanging out on the door stoop. No screens of the windows. A killer is on the loose.

An older woman is a moralist ("They probably asked for it. Decent women don't get themselves killed."). The new janitor looks familiar, but I can't place him. Our protagonist is frazzled younger lady. Women were apparently so emotional in the '50s.

What I like best is the episode throws legitimate suspicion on 3-4 characters. What I like next best is that the husband has a beer at the bar before going in to work the night shift.

I think I saw the ending coming, but it is very good nonetheless.
