Once again, this has been 1 of the best adaptations I've ever heard. Not only the sound effects of the bullets and the watery sewers got my attention, but also the music that sets the tones of compassion & companionship to the characters & the listening viewers. If only Amanda Plummer & Lloyd Battista spoke with french accents, like the other actors, this would've been a flawless episode. I would give Alexander Scourby (as Jean Valjean) & Bernard Grant (as Inspector Javert) a round of applause for their superb acting. Enjoy the final chapter of this CBSRMT episode, everyone!

This adaptation of Les Miserables was long (5 episodes) and some times less than exciting, but the final episode was unbelievable. 5 stars. The ending was fantastic. I am please that in Mystery Theater's final years the episodes departed from the "fear you can hear" and took a chance on works such as Les Miserables. Beautiful story well worth the 5 episode listen.
