Storyline

Mr. Princey's batty daughter, Millicent, has just killed the schoolmaster, with whom she was in love, when she found out he had gotten engaged to another woman. A murderess in the family? That won't do. Mr. Princey has a shallow dimwit for a son and a wife who, whatever her other qualities, is no good when it comes to covering up a murder. Mr. Princey takes it upon himself to keep Millicent out of prison or the madhouse. Good luck is on his side when Captain Smollet stops by for a visit. Captain Smollet, it seems, has just as much a motive for murder as Millicent. Written by J. Spurlin

They Should Have Buried the Daughter
30 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sometimes an episode seems so dumb. Of course, before long you come to realize that the whole thing was done tongue in cheek. This is about the crazy frenetic daughter of a wealthy family. She has murdered her "lover," a schoolmaster and now the family has to deal with it by covering it up. As far as basic morality goes, there's not much to go around in this presentation. They eventually invite a beloved family friend and decide to set him up for the crime. Meanwhile, the daughter, who gyrates and howls, continues to make outrageous statements, bothering everyone. If you want a primer on overacting, watch this. Still, she steals every scene she's in. Don't take this one very seriously and you'll enjoy it a lot more.
