Why should I care?!
5 May 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Ray (Joe Maross) is a gambler who has thrown away a lot of money over the years. Now, he's insisting to Ruth, his wife (Beverly Garland), that he MUST have her life savings of he'll be killed because of a debt he owes. However, she's heard this sort of story before--many times. So, she refuses to give Ray anything. So, he eventually enlists the help of a guy who might just be a serial killer (Warren Oates)!!

As I watched this show, I found myself wondering why I should care about Ray. After all, he created these problems and comes off as a pusillanimous little worm. And, because the show just isn't that thrilling (despite being an episode of "Thriller"), I don't think it's worth your time unless you are an absolute die-hard fan and don't mind the earlier episodes--which are by far the dullest of the series. Fortunately, they did improve a bit as the show progressed.
