The First
29 October 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Leslie Nielsen stars as Alan Patterson, a successful and happily married Vice President of his company that suddenly finds his life under siege by two different people, both employees: Lily Hanson(played by Natalie Trundy) is in love with him and wants to be his new wife, and is unwilling to take no for an answer, and Merle Jenkins(played by George Grizzard) who is deeply insecure and desperately wants to step into Alan's shoes, and take over his life. Both will collide before one has a final confrontation... First episode of the series is not typical of where the series would go, but is one of the better crime episodes, with good performances and direction.
