Much of this episode is set within a prison...and so Ness being involved makes very little sense. No matter...it is still entertaining.
When the show begins, inmate Nick Segal has his arm broken in what's being reported as an accident...though the audience can see it was intentional. A bit later, a shot rings out and Segal is killed...and apparently the murder weapon was a rifle. Now here is where it gets really stupid...the Warden and Ness all start talking about 'how would an inmate get a rifle into the prison?'. Huh?! My immediate thought was that one of the guards shot Segal...and it took them another 40 minutes to get to this ingenious solution(?). In the meantime, Ness manages to get a prisoner, Sebring (Leslie Nielsen), to investigate the murder for him and the show is mildly interesting but certainly isn't among their better shows due to the writing...as it seemed everyone but the characters in the show knew the killer had to be a guard. Duh.
