I remember watching this episode when it first aired and its shockingly gruesome ending has stuck with me to this day. I guess that is what happens when you let jealousy and paranoia overcloud your judgement. Everything about this episode is so spot on, from the directing to the soundtrack. A must watch for any TFTC fan ! On a side note, I've always thought Gavan O'Herlihy bared a striking resemblance to William Atherton.
Morton's da man ! Effin awesome ep ! Possibly the creepiest one in the whole series with its blend of reality/trash tv feel, Morton Downey Jr in his own role in an over-the-top performance and its eerie mood. I've always wondered if the writers took inspiration from the Dorothea Puente case to write the script for this particular TFTC episode. ✪✪✪✪✪
