"I don't believe in skeletons driving cars!" Great episode with a twist at the end.

George Lowthar's episodes are usually fantastic, and this was no exception. Kind of a "Scooby-Doo" story: did a ghost do it, and, if not, who did? All the clues are there for the listener to follow. Whodunit, questioned supernatural elements.

This is the first episode of RMT I ever heard, and the one that got me very interested in (and hooked on) the series. Classic story, with good surprises and very well acted out. This has to be one of the best episodes.

What’s behind the wheel is every bit as mysterious and suspect as some of the characters. Clever and interesting.

A ghost driver terrorizes the owners and visitors of an old New England lodge.

A cople purchase a ski lodge and meet the woman that was living there who tells them that her dead husband told her she would live there again. He died leaving her in dire straits, but she holds on to the hope that she will live there againa dn is quite aggressive about it too! Guests travelling up and down the mountain road are occasionally run off the road by a ghost car driven by a skeleton.

Anxious to get away from the city, a couple purchase an old mansion in the Colorado Rockies with the intention of turning it into a ski resort, against the warnings of a former owner who claims that her dead husband's ghost has driven former purchasers off the cliff access road to their deaths.

Very Scooby-doo - but still enjoyable.

"Russian Roulette and driving head on into an oncoming car offer the same risks." This episode was a little bit Scooby Doo meets the Mentalist. Great episode with great acting. The ending was just a shade on the weak side. 4 stars.

One of my many favorites, I dont know all I see is the list of actors. I thought the husband was Tom Bosley for the longest time. Mary Jane Higby as Mrs. Jessica Gormely Augusta Dabney as Liz Stout Nick Pryor as Jason Gormely Mason Adams as Mel Stout Norman Rose as Mike Duncan Leon Janney as Rory

Good episode that seems supernatural, is explained not to be supernatural, then adds a question of the supernatural. Interesting dynamic between the mother and her son who likes playing Russian Roulette (perhaps it's good that he never bought a lottery ticket?). I found it strange that the son would try to drive people away when they could not afford to live there anymore anyway.
