Predictable, but still very entertaining!

It was predictable...but I sympathized; I also enjoy good food more than I should. Political drama; no supernatural elements.

A pig of a dictator rules a South American country with an iron fist. A woman attempts exact revenge for the killing of her son in a very unusual way.

The entire episode can be summarized in one sentence: A evil corpulent Central American dictator is overthrown with knife and fork.

A woman vows revenge upon the third world dictator who killed her son. Story lacks any real depth or subtlety

The main story was pretty good, but I was DELIGHTED with the ending. The perfect murder, done with the perfect murder weapon! I was grinning from ear to ear when listening to the ending. Immensely satisfying.

Eh...sheer and total boredom. I just didn't get immersed in the story at all. 3 stars. Sam Dann has written better episodes.

NOT a murder..assisted suicide!

I was about to write my comment and noticed Bryan's comment above - I guess I'd have to agree with it. I did find it funny in a way when he was eating that he asked for his doctor to be shot - I know it's a show so it can be funny (it wouldn't be in real life). Did anyone else think of the restaurant scene in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life at the end?

Oh, and the acting is superb here.

This was a fun one. I let out an audible "ha!" at the final line. I recommend this fun little romp very much. Heck, the final line alone makes it worth the listen )
