Season 3 still has a few swerves to it as it heads towards the finale.
In “The Gunrunner” we get a suspicious kidnapping and the 1971 version of a burner phone. In “Dear Enemy” Vera Miles insists that Steve re-open the case that sent her husband to jail for murdering his mistress.
The ultimate swerve is that George Murdock isn’t the asshole. Even when he’s a good guy, he still manages to be a dick. Not so in “The Gunrunner”. Yes, I say many words about that, the burner phone, and Vera Mile’s decided to wear a pink nightie (?) to talk to Steve about re-opening her husband’s case while Gary Collins looks on. Also, I probably spend more minutes talking about the greatness that is Dub Taylor than he is actually in the episode.
Listen to all of the words and minutes on Souncloud, iTunes, Spotify, and Stitcher.
Behold the photographic evidence of the ultimate payphone set-up and the nightie in question. Two bits of greatness I will never get over.
