Lipstick Killer
14 December 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

A killer is loose breaking the necks of young women who place singles ads, two policewomen are assigned to stakeout an apartment complex for singles, Terry and Willie are assigned as back up.

A good episode, James Olson plays the psycho killer who writes "Please" in lipstick at the murder scenes. Olson was a go-to actor for these type of roles in many 1970s TV shows. He would return in a later role in this series as another creep in the second season episode A Matter of Justice.
