Great Episode
30 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the better and most unpredictable episodes of this great series. A couple in maybe their 40s have an elderly uncle living with them. He is not as old as he appears at first though, we later learn he is only about 65. George passes away and the couple are faced with what to do after his death. Uncle George has had a pension check coming that has helped the struggling couple out and they do not want to lose it. The husband has a heart problems. So they set out to find a replacement for him. James Coburn introduces the story and is as cool as he always is. Copies of this are hard to find but if you do find it check it out! Once you find out the truth about "Uncle George" you'll cringe for sure!
