The Surprise in the Oven
11 July 2011 | by oliver-177See all my reviews

An unusual episode. The Chief is alone in his apartment while Mark is taking a class in college (on the unreliability of witnesses), and Eve and Ed are enduring a dull evening at the opera. The Chief receives a threatening phone call, followed by many more: the brother of a young man who was executed following a bloody botched robbery wants revenge. Most of the episode consists of the Chief setting an elaborate trap for his expected assailant, using household items. The three younger police staff return just as the Chief overcomes the unhinged killer. It's all dark and tense, with good music background. Interestingly, it is reminiscent of the last minutes of the movie Rear Window... where Raymond Burr was the heavy, not the victim. The opera scenes are funny, and the college scenes are good too.
