Summary[edit | edit source]

A lying TV consumer advocate is killed and suspicion lands on one of the clients whose products he maligned.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

This is the first episode directed by Anthony Pullen Shaw, Angela Lansbury's son.

This is the second appearance of Adrienne Barbeau. Her first outing was Jessica Behind Bars, where Ms Barbeau portrayed a loud & brash inmate who wanted to bust some heads and start a prison riot.

This is the 2nd episode in which the person killed was not the intended target. The first was Menace, Anyone?

Victim: Kenneth Chambers (meant to be Steve Honig)

Killer: Robert Warren

Cause of death: Gunshot

Motive: Was in love with Jayne Honig, Steve's wife and wanted to kill him so they could be together, and didn't know Chambers was in Steve's office watching his TV.

Goofs[edit | edit source]

Denver Police Lt. Flannigan makes mention of the news catch-phrase "Film at 11". Denver is on Mountain Time, so he should have said "Film at 10".

A palm tree is spotted in the park scene when Jessica is interviewing a suspect. This takes place in Denver.

When Jessica is traveling to the crime scene with Jayne Honig, the car they are riding in has no rear view mirror.

When Jessica is traveling to the crime scene with Jayne Honig, they are on what appears to be a highway with two lanes going in their direction. A vehicle behind them speeds up and starts to pass. Within 1-2 seconds, Jayne's car slows to a stop at the crime scene at the end of a street that is blocked off by police, and the passing vehicle has disappeared.

There's no story at all that Rob handled the weapon at the time that Kenneth Chambers was killed, so how could he have used a weapon on Kenneth Chambers when there's story showing that he handled the weapon ?
