Despite the cliché-ridden opening, this was a good episode, a very spooky one and fantastically photographed. All of Steven Spielberg's stuff looks good but this has spectacular colors and visuals.
This turned out to be a straight crime story, with no supernatural event or comedy. It was one of the better episodes for totally keeping one's attention. This will rivet you to your screen. Kudos to cinematographer Vincent Martinelli.
About that beginning.....only in the movies and TV do you see things that make you shake your head, muttering to yourself that "nobody would ever be dumb enough to do that!" That's happens twice in the first minute of this program. There is a serial killer on the loose in the city. It's in all the headlines. So what do we see? A woman walking alone down a dark alley. Puhh-leeeze. Of course she gets strangled. To compound the matter, a witness in the alley sees the crime and runs. Does he run out of the alley yelling for police. No, he stops and goes to a telephone booth, not far from the murderer! Is he killed? Of course. Nonetheless, an excellent episode.
