Good Acting--Saw It Coming--Still Fun
5 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The problem with shows that are based on irony and surprise endings is that we tend to try to guess what will happen. This is true of "The Twilight Zone" and its imitators. This is nicely crafted. We have a kind of milquetoast man who is preparing soup on a hot plate in a big city apartment, when he sees something in the apartment across the street. No, it isn't 't Raymond Burr from "Rear Window," but it is a man, who, surprised during a robbery, kills a young woman. When the police arrive, they go to the apartment, but it is empty, obviously prepared for tenancy. The police jump to the conclusion he is insane. Quite a leap. He is locked up under psychiatric care. He is a somewhat driven man and insists that he observed the murder. What ensues is an effort to crack him, but he won't crack. This is a simple police story that morphs into more. One of the better of the ten episodes.
