Strange, lame and werid funny episode of the series.
28 February 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This episode from season one of the "AS" series called "Hell Toupee" is one that's different, a little lame, strange, and funny. It involves a defense lawyer who finds out some stuff about murders, clients, and other things. As it's with each defendant seems to be involved with a hair piece that being a toupee as with each head the piece goes on murder seems to happen. And when it gets in the hands of one mild mannered lawyer other attorneys be well aware! Overall funny and different certainly an odd and different entry from the series.
