  1. THAT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was actually holding MY breath and some parts! On a side note: I always wonder – were women really that mean and biting and nasty “back in the day”? WOW…………in every OTR show I hear – esp the ones from the 40’s they are just mean, suspicious and short tempered. Maybe they were just portraying steotypical woman behavior – not sure – but very curious!

  2. I really liked this one as well, with its odd dash of Dragnet like narration. I walked extra slow to make sure I finished it.
