Rhodes takes on Frank Burns
9 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In what was probably a very edited episode this time around, I would have to say that if shown in original format, this would have been an excellent entry in this controversial series. It's hard to connect the dots early on, but as the show progressed, I understood why Edgar Allen Poe's writings were mentioned; it turns out that some folks were playing this card game revolving around Poe and his stories, including the Cask of Amontillado and The Pit and the Pendulum. The girl who hosted this game and/or party was murdered, I believe, although I don't know why, but the same person killed another girl who witnessed this murder. Since finding the original format of this show is probably next to impossible, you'll have to let your imagination wander, which can be frustrating. This was directed by Richard Donner(Lethal Weapon), and stars Carol Lynley and Larry Linville, who plays a straight role rather well. It's hard writing proper reviews for this edited series, but from what I've seen so far, I highly recommend it.
