Edgy and creepy
23 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A mild-mannered dentist and his bitchy wife have a teenaged son who is mildly disturbed and who takes delight in tormenting an old lady neighbor. The son also gets his hands on a rifle and learns to shoot very accurately, which disturbs his father no end. Everything comes to a head one night when the creepy son is tormenting the old lady, who herself has a rifle. Eddie Albert is the dad, Dina Merrill is the wife. The episode has even more import today in the wake of mass shootings by disturbed young men in places like Colorado and Connecticut. The funny thing is, the kid playing the wacko son looks like he belongs on the cloyingly wholesome "My Three Sons." Handled very well, and not the only time this excellent series dealt with disturbed adolescent males.
