Another Thoughtless Stupid Crime
5 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is another one of those episodes where we actually pull for the guy. While he is a despicable masher who cares about no one but himself, he does set up a great pension for himself by using murder as his vehicle. Unfortunately, he doesn't count on variables that can do in the whole plan. He also doesn't allow himself to keep a low profile. He is combative and arrogant and this is his downfall. This is another case of a person who doesn't think things through. When painting a floor, always leave yourself an out. He, unfortunately for him, leaves himself no options. This is pretty well done, though the concluding scene seems a bit strained. It does have that nice Hitchcock twist and I enjoyed it.
