Storyline

On a wet Saturday, Mr. Princey learns that his unbalanced daughter Millicent has hit and killed the man with whom she was obsessed, but did not love her, with a croquet mallet. Mr. Princey cannot afford a scandal at any cost. When a family friend comes visiting Princey gets his dim son George to attack him, with a view to making it look as though the murder was a case of self-defence. Never has family solidarity been so important. Nothing must go wrong. Will it? Written by don @ minifie-1

The worst thing I've ever sat through.
21 February 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Millicent is in a state of shock, an unbalanced girl, hysterical and close to the edge, she has killed a preacher she'd fallen in love with, the latest in a list of infatuations. When he rejected her, she killed him with a croquet mallet. Her family cannot have the scandal, her overbearing father Mr Princey takes the lead in order to save his daughter from Prison. A family friend 'Jack Lowry' calls, overhearing some of the conversation, Mr Princey encourages son George to attack Jack, and make it appear that George had committed the crime.

This is the ugliest looking episode I have ever seen, it looks appallingly cheap and nasty, it has zero sophistication, it should have been binned.

Sensationally awful, two words that seem to fit together nicely to describe Wet Saturday. I am honestly speechless at just how bad this is, it's no wonder in terms of overall rating on IMDb that this sits firmly at the bottom of the pile, it has zero redeeming features, maybe the music used to conclude the episode, brilliantly creepy.

1/10
