This one threw me a curve!
9 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I like being surprised as I watch a TV show--and "Girl on the Road" is just that. While I thought the show was going one direction, it abruptly went a different one and I really appreciate that.

This show begins with a creepy guy, John Prescott, stopping by to help Lila with her broken down car. I say creepy because he comes on very strong and seems almost like a potential sex offender. I really expected this would be where the show would go. However, he turned out to be a nice guy--despite his initial demeanor.

The problem turns out to be Lila herself. She's in some sort of trouble and Prescott thinks that a local rich guy, Morgan Debs (Boris Karloff) is behind it all. And, when she disappears, he is convinced Debs is responsible. What's next? See the show for yourself--it's worth it, as it's well written and exciting...and probably not one bit true despite the narrator (also Karloff) insisting that it is.
