Body In The Rug
30 October 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Larry Pennell plays carefree beach-goer Larry Weeks, who one day returns home to find that his older brother James(played by Edward Platt) has murdered his wife in a jealous rage after discovering her infidelities. Larry decides to help his brother cover up the crime by disposing of her body, first by wrapping it up in a rug, then attempts to dispose of it in his car, but after getting a flat tire, accepts a lift from a truck driver that sets off a chain-of-events that threaten to expose the cover up... Stylish episode has fine acting, direction, writing, and score, but is marred by a self-defeating(though still ambiguous) wrap up. Still well worth watching regardless.
