Great opening hook of the type the series was known for. From this grisly opening, segue to Pete and Edie cuddling with some open mouth kissing. Then cut to the gal (Vincent) getting outlined on a backstop with flying knives. Yup, no doubt about itthe series plots may have been pedestrian, but who cared, what with so much color and style going on. Here the plot's fairly typical, something about a frame-up, involving such sinister types as Bruce Gordon and Norman Fell. And, for good eye-catching measure, there's little guy Billy Barty adding his incomparable color. And mustn't overlook the inventive camera anglesthe overhead shot of the room, the weird eyes framed in the rear view mirror. And finally the crashing brawl inside the chic 50's-style apartment. So forget the tangled plot; there's a stylistic feast awaiting.
