Bad...just plain bad.
16 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Have you ever watched a TV show or movie where the first half really piqued your interest and the rest of the program just turned out to be a lot of rubbish? Such is the case with "An Error in Chemistry"--a really bad episode of "Climax".

The show begins with a carnival coming to town and a fast-talking film-flam man ingratiating himself to the locals. How? He gives EVERYONE playing his gave something free and wonderful! You know he must have some ulterior motives, as no game of chance can have so many winners! Soon, inexplicably, the guy (Edmond O'Brien) announces he's quitting the carnival and moving to this little town. And, soon as you know it, he's marrying a local lady!! This guy really moves fast. However, when shortly after his marriage he coolly murders this new wife, I know I was left totally baffled and wanted to know the show's secret. Unfortunately, the secret turned out to be total rubbish. And, in addition to a really stupid plot twist, how exactly the Sheriff discovers the truth is JUST PLAIN STUPID!!! Don't believe me...see it for yourself! Bad writing, some atrocious over-acting by O'Brien and a HORRIBLE ending--this one will feel like a waste of time by the time it's finished. I promise...it's bad!
