On more than one occasion, Brianne's colleagues at the crisis center casually hand the stalker over to her whenever he calls and asks specifically for her - this despite them having heard his distinctive voice over the telephone loudspeakers and tape recordings, etc. See more »

Barber, Barber, Shave A Pig!
14 July 2003 | by supersalsantosSee all my reviews

Wonder Woman Lynda Carter swaps her hotpants for a hotline in this unintentionally hilarious made-for-TV hokum about a Samaritans style crisis helpline gal attracting the unwanted attentions of the fabulously monickered serial killer, The Barber (so-called because of his penchant for hacking off his victims locks), who delights in feeding her cryptic nursery rhyme style riddles when planning his next murder. Predictably, the too-clever-by-half loon makes the mistake of targeting Ms Carter as that next corpse-to-be and the result is seldom in doubt thereafter.
