  • A psychology professor does a study where he wants to find out how many couples would murder their spouse.

    Funny episode with a delightful introduction by Alfred about shooting an arrow in the air. The running gag is that he shot himself with it but can't find because it's in his head.

    A pretty entertaing episode. A stuffy old married man places an ad for his study on couples. His ad basically asks them if they could commit murder to end their marriages. He gets caught by the police but insists on continuing his study.

    Barry Nelson (James Parkerson) is good in this doing the stupid married man. Patricia Breslin (Doris Parkerson)
    is also good in this as the neglected wife.

    Anyhow long story , the professor finds him being the victim of his own creation when Doris's lover wants to kill him.

    The hitman he hires though and James decide to kill the wife instead and this lead to a funny scenario at the end.

    One of those "you better wish what you ask for because you might get it" classics.
