Storyline

It's Sally's birthday, but she and Mac are in no mood to celebrate as someone has broken into their house and stolen all the sharp objects (knives, scissors, razor blades and even Sally's knitting needles). Making things worse is that a serial killer known as the Asylum Killer is on the loose and he has written a letter promising a double murder for his next crime. The couple make the best of it despite their fears and try to celebrate. However, after drinking drugged champagne they are knocked unconscious and awake to find their house covered with a fumigation tent and poison gas being pumped into their house. Now they must find a way to escape before they are overcome by the gas. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

You don't have to spend so much money to have a memorable episode!
24 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't been a fan of MacMillan & Wife. I prefer Columbo anyday but the local station airs a weekly episode of Mac and wife, Sally. Of course, movie star Rock Hudson takes the role as San Francisco Police Commissioner who is married to young Sally played by Susan Saint James, a model turned actress. In this episode, they are believable about a serial killer known as the asylum murderer who enjoys watching his victims die. In this episode, the murderer has a masterful plan in which his victims die while their home is being fumigated. The killer has already sent his mother-in-law away as well as the Police Commissioner's trustful assistant who would know something is up. This episode is memorable if not because the actors make it memorable.
