The plot and actors listed above are for a different episode (although I'm not sure which one). This story (which IS License to Kill) is about a hulking football player who is a gentle giant whose manager wants to transform him into "The Chopper". In a sense it's nature vs. nurture story and isn't too bad to listen to, especially since Fred Gwynn is in it.

(The comment above refers to episode 590. Same title, different cast and plot.) This story is like an offering from the Grand Guignol, filled with insanity, mayhem, and a double-cross or two. THe story begins with a mental patient trying to commit murder his wife. Her reaction is a fierce determination to see him released. As the crimes multiply, the definitions of sanity and murder only grow more confused. A nice variation on the theme of deliberately driving a meal ticket insane helps make this an above-average episode.
