More Curious Than Suspenseful
19 April 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Rather sour entry with weak payoff. Feuding brother and sister in same household conspire against one another over strange death of brother's wife. It's a talky 30-minutes with basically only a single set. Fortunately, the small 3-person cast comes through with the series strength of good performances, especially Ryan as the on-looker and Mathews as the sister.

The episode manages some suspense— actually more like curiosity—over undercurrents among the characters; however the plot is more character study than involving story. In fact, the humorous Hitchcock wraparound may be the best feature. In my book, it's an unfortunately lesser entry.
