The End
2 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Last episode of the series is, as many have noted, a most inappropriate finale, since this series was at its best with Gothic horror, which gave viewers some of the finest hours of horror in television history, which most certainly doesn't describe this competent but unmemorable episode about an international team of "specialists" who target jewel thieves in Canada and the U.S. Cast with previous actors of the series like Lin McCarthy, Ronald Howard, and Sean McClory, this was in fact an unsold pilot for a TV series inserted into "Thriller", like when 'Cavender Is Coming' was forced onto "The Twilight Zone".

This now classic series deserved a better send-off...
