Madness in Their Methods
28 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe this was a successful episode because as Barry Morse's character railed on and on, I could hardly stand to get to the end of this episode. He ad his colleague, two former insurance men, have decided to try to prevent murders. They do this by following people who are so hateful that others would love to see them dead. They are following Eileen Brennen who leaves a path of hatred wherever she goes. She yells at anyone who tries to assist her, mistreats store clerks, and so on. She is asking to be offed, according to these two knuckleheads. When they finally corner her and try to help there is a scene and they end up striking her with a cane. The two men decide they have had enough of this business but there is proof in the pudding.
