Scorned Women
2 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Penultimate episode of the series was this third multi-segment episode, which stars Howard Morris & Rosemary Murphy:

'Murder On The Rocks' - Morris and Murphy play an estranged married couple who each have plans to murder the other, but of course neither plan succeeds in the way they anticipated. A bit obvious, but still fun.

'Goodbye, Dr. Bliss' - Morris plays Dr. Bliss, who is hired as chief librarian at a campus library over long time employee Miss Quimby(Murphy), who is forced to take drastic action to save her job, and eliminate the odious Dr. Bliss... Again it's a bit obvious, yet just as much fun.
