Storyline

Garment manufacturer Harry Elton is in big trouble. Thanks to his business partner Marvin's lack of foresight in predicting the next season's fashions, he stands to lose all his cash and face bankruptcy. But Harry likes it in the town of Wilmington, where he and his wife Roberta enjoy a very good life-style. He does not want to see it go. However, if his wife 'went' and he collected on her life insurance policy, he could maintain his comfortable existence. . . Written by don @ minifie-1

Good fun at last.

Harry seems to have got it wrong from a business point of view, together with business partner and designer Marvin the pair run a business designing and manufacturing ladies' fashions. Marvin has made the dresses too short, $200,000 dollars down the drain. Marvin admits he's got it wrong, and virtually sunk the pair. Harry's wife has a trust fund, but he cannot get to it. Harry talks to his wife, and tells her that the only way out seems to be an insurance fund on Marvin, 'The perfect murder.' Harry likes living in Wilmington, and doesn't want to give it up. Harry concocts a plan involving Marvin and his wife, to cash in on Marvin's insurance money.

Now I am a fan of the late Robert Loggia, he puts in a rather fun performance as Harry. An actor with loads of charm, and a surprising amount of black humour. He makes the episode rather watchable.

Now I have been hyper critical of the recent batch of tawdry episodes, but 'I like it here in Wilmington,' is quite fun, it's better made, a bit more intriguing, all in all, just better then the latest offerings. The twist is one that I didn't see coming, a bit more imagination was used.

5/10
