  • a habitual prison escapee concocts the perfect escape.

    brilliant! this is the finest alfred hitchcock i've seen. great acting, screenplay, and directing. i have had sort of an obsession with all televeision/movies pertaining to prison. The episode ending kept me awake one night. not since the sixth sense have i seen an ending so hair raising. this is exaclty the sort of television i sought when browsing hulu. a mere 8.8 did this episode no justice. i rated it a 10.0. this ranks right up there with some of the twilight zones, outer limits, and night gallery for my favorite television show. alfred hitchcock is a master in my book. now i'm off to obtain some more material from this writer.
