Tweety Gets Killed, and It Ain't Sylvester
7 May 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

This episode demonstrates a strong point of the series. The crime itself is far from commanding-- someone is breaking into suburban homes and killing pet birds. Doesn't sound like much of a story unless you're a bird lover, but Webb and company manage to turn the idea into a highly entertaining half-hour. There are a number of interviews, a series staple. However, interviews could be a problem, since the entertainment value of several people standing around talking is limited, to say the least. Webb tried to spice up most interviews by giving the interviewee some distinctive trait, some feature that would hold audience interest. Here the new home salesman keeps trying to sell them on buying. Anyway, the dialogue gambit usually worked, although at times the traits made the public seem somewhat foolish. The ending here is rather atypically amusing as we listen to the suspect dig his own grave. Watch for Bill Boyett in a rare non-cop role, and, of course, the great Paul Richards who could do more with shifty eyes and strange tics than just about anyone else-- before an untimely death.
