Good Episode Which Keeps You Guessing
23 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a "sniper" story and it winds up with a nice twist to it, not something I suspect anyone would figure out. It looks like a routine crime in regards to solving it, especially halfway through the episode but some strange developments occur in the last 10 minutes of this story.

One of the suspects was very interesting, much more than the others. That was "Bill Wesson," played by Clarke Gordon, an actor who was just starting out his career, although he had guest-starred in an obscure TV show in 1951 (TV's infancy) called "The Web." Believe-it-or-not, he finished his career with a small role in "Cheers" in 1993, playing a judge.

Overall, I liked this episode. It kept you guessing and was interesting all the way.
