Two Complete Idiots
5 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an episode where the central figure acts in the most outrageous way to get what he wants and realizes he is now saddled with more problems than he can imagine. He murders a woman's husband because she has, in a random way, said she would like to be rid of him. Her pursuer needs her to ally with him, to keep the police from finding out. She alibis him and all is well. Well, not really. While she may be a prize physically, she is a knucklehead. She is totally spoiled and lacking in any sense of reality. She becomes fixated on an alligator case that was in the car of her late husband the night he was murdered. She sets herself and her new friend up for suspicion by insisting on getting the case back. The detective notices that she is more upset about the case than the death of her husband. Well, you get the picture. The Sword of Damocles hangs over the murderer and her fixation is going to bring them down. Not without merit.
