As he frantically cleans his fingerprints, both real and imagined, he realizes that Vaughn had been leading him on, luring him into touching object after object from a cocktail glass to pre-Columbian art. The price should have been warning enough, but I did have dim memories of enjoying a few of them way back when.
However, in the context of an anthology series, and given when it was made, it interested me enough to at least try another episode.
And how does the mere presence of fingerprints incriminate Ironside? And I got an A every quarter. No one is going to watch this episode and recommend the series to their friends. They lead him out in handcuffs which, come to think of it, would not have been possible for him at the end of Total Recall.
OK, so Vaughn goaded Ironside into killing him and also made sure that plenty of evidence was left to incriminate him.
And there is no mention of any terminal disease. Do I have to get my transcripts? He is assisted by some good make-up, costuming, and fish-eye shots, but major kudos to him for playing so believably against type.
As is, the short story was probably better off without it. Last year, I bailed after the first season, but have decided to soldier on to see if I was too hasty. If the cancer twist had been worked into the show more elegantly, it might have worked.
He has made a nice career out of playing tough guys, always in control. The first surprise was Michael Ironside. I can only assume Superman III killed his career. In fact, he says Ironside probably did Vaughn a favor. Through a series of flashbacks that make LOST look like a linear narrative, we follow Ironside as he attempts to remove his fingerprints after killing Vaughn.
He completely pulls it off, having an anxiety attack that lasts most of the whole episode. As he descends into madness, the fingerprints begin appearing everywhere, taunting him like a visual Tell-Tale Heart.
This is the first time I remember seeing him in panic mode, sweating profusely, and always a step behind. I saw Jenna Jameson on an episode of Family Guy this morning, so she was fresh in my mind. As luck would have it, the first episode I watched is based on a short story that appears in Bradbury Stories: But to what end?
No mention is made of insurance. Finally, after a night of frantic cleaning that would give Felix Unger the willies, that would sent the CSI crew to the nut-hut, that would have him polish more knobs than Jenna Jameson, the police arrive."The Fruit at the Bottom of the Bowl" is a short story by Ray Bradbury.
