Recruitment for down under? Like working in hell!
7 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode "Red Leader" I just recently watched and must say I found it one of the better ones due to it's morality tale and plot twist. Joe E. Tata(of later "Beverly Hills 90210" fame)stars as a crooked and con business tycoon who's in the building and construction field and he's just took a fortune from his dead business partner. And the plans are for him to conduct more schemes and raw deals that only benefit to make him richer. All of a sudden from underneath the concrete office floor building it cracks and explodes with red steam as one by one people he's double crossed from the past come up all with one goal in common to recruit him for a job. And this will be a job of running certain things in hell! Like being a captain for the devil. Yet life in the rich business world seems to good. Yet as the old saying proves bad people meet their cruel fate as the episode twist in it's ending and now it's a lifetime of working down under in the red heat! Great episode of the series that's well acted and the plot twist teaching a good morality lesson that bad people get what they deserve!
