On a rainy day, office manager Oliver Pope is driving home when he hits a newspaper boy with his car and promptly flees the scene. He puts the car in his garage but when his wife sees the lights flashing, she thinks they have an intruder. In fact, its just the car acting up. In the middle of the night, his car horn honks and when his wife takes it out the next day, it stops at the exact corner where the accident occurred. When his competitor at the office, Pete Radcliff, is arrested he thinks he's home free. It's apparent however that the car is going to continue acting up until Pope makes things right.

Not Your Typical Ford
3 July 2006 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Businessman Edward Andrews is a hit-and-run driver, to which his car reacts in a most peculiar way.

Slender premise can't fill out full half-hour, so subplot of office rival Kevin Hagen is added. Tall, ungainly Andrews specialized in slippery or sinister businessmen. Here he carries show with gamut of emotions in a bravura performance. Writer Earl Hamner was creator of 70's family show The Waltons, so I suppose its not surprising that the script stays within Andrews' household. Trouble is the gimmick has no wallop and lead-up lacks suspense. Even baroque stylist John Brahm directs without usual flair, apparently unengaged by the single-note plot. One notable feature-- how did they manage the driverless car, the episode's one real memorable oddity?
