  • A Spooky Murder Mystery

    The episode feels like it was made for Halloween. Its got a big, old mansion surrounded in local legend. Its got a crazy, reclusive millionaire, a large, socially awkward woman who has been given the cruel nickname, "Pig Woman". It's also got a bunch of dead bodies waiting to be dug up.

    Granted, I was pretty sure I knew what the twist was with the reclusive millionaire, but its nice that the writers decided to give the network TV audience a murder mix between Psycho and a macabre, Southern horror novel.
