The missing Robin Westlin
5 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robin Westlin is the head of a get-rich-fast type organization, and he goes missing after wandering into Dr Sloan's house (which is on Colorado Drive, implying this episode was filmed in Colorado). Anyway, Dr Sloan is not living in a beach house which we are familiar with when he and the rest of the production moved to LA and lovely beach views that are often a battleground between home owners and innocent folk who just want to enjoy what belongs to the public.

Anyway, one minor blooper in this episode, the appearance of a boom mic at the top of the screen.

Norman Briggs is played by the great Michael Tucci, and for some reason I think he's the brother of Stanley "Monk" Tucci, but the internet assures me they're not related so that settles it.
