Fran Belding has a stalker
20 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode focuses on Elizabeth Baur who is house sitting the penthouse apartment of a friend and feeding her guppies. The minute she moved in however she starts getting those calls with heavy mouth breathing. Foolish perpetrator, did they not know the Ironside squad would get called in?

In fact Raymond Burr moves in as her old uncle Bob visiting from out of town. Two possible suspects emerge, a smooth talking country conman that L.Q. Jones plays and a 17 year old kid played by Barry Livingston who is a paraplegic since an auto accident and filled with rage. Something that Chief Ironside can identify with.

This was a neat episode and the solution to the crime comes from way out of left field. An offhand remark by Don Galloway turns the investigation in the right direction.

Definitely one of the best Ironside episodes I've seen.
