We are down to just twelve episodes of Escape...and that brings us to some of the episodes that I have been avoiding.
I don't like the episodes referenced below and can't bring myself to describe them in detail. These were not adapted from written works. They were written for Escape. They aren't good.
I just want to check these two episodes off of my list. So, here they are:
"Eye of Evil"--This is a story written by Kathleen Hite. What is it about? A man goes into the jungle to find his lost colleague...and after that there is a lot of dialogue. Don't make me listen to this episode again. "Eye of Evil" aired on July 17, 1954.
"Benchillina and the Fisherman"--This is a story written by John Dehner. What is it about? A man goes fishing in the moors of Northern Ireland and meets a gypsy woman named Benchillina. Soon afterward, they run away to escape her brutal fiance. They travel across the moors in a horse cart, but her fiance soon catches up to them. He mutilates Benchillina's face and then she is accidentally shot. Her fiance is killed by the fisherman. Then, he is alone with two dead gypsies. That's the end of the story. "Benchillina and the Fisherman" aired on June 10, 1954.
That's as much as I'm going to say about these two episodes. Let's move on.
