There was blood on the dance floor...
16 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

A taxi dancer is found murdered, with the killer apparently dragging her dead, bloody body around while 'dancing' to a tune she hated. Her best friend Jennifer Grey is also a dancer for hire and is asked by detectives Eric Stoltz and Richard Portnow to report anything suspicious. One evening while dancing with a stranger, she remembers something her friend said on their last evening together, and she thinks the stranger might be the killer...

This episode was directed by Peter Bogdanovich, and based on a short story by Cornell Woolrich. Bogdanovich employs an interesting, but flawed, gimmick: all the sets and clothes are done in black, white & gray, with only skin, neon lights and of course blood appearing in color. It's slightly distracting, and doesn't do anything really to draw you into the noir world. Grey tries to act like a 40s 'tough cookie' girl, but fails rather badly, not helped by Stolz who is relaxed and 'feels' right, making her acting look even worse. The story is short and not very surprising, but it's really the execution that is a bit of a letdown. Not the best episode in the series.
