* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: Milton Berle gives a worthy dramatic performance in "That He Should Weep for Her".
* JerkassWoobie: Sherman Tyler from "A Cruel and Unusual Night". He killed a clerk while robbing a liquor store, was almost executed, then escaped to take {{revenge}} against the judge who sentenced him by putting him through a similar ordeal. He's also relentlessly self-centered, and he orders his ExtremeDoormat wife around despite her obvious discomfort with his actions. On the other hand, the shooting was accidental, he actually feels sorry for the man he killed, and even the judge admits that Sherman's death row ordeal (he was put in the gas chamber, released at the last possible second, then faced the prospect of ''having to be executed again'' until his death sentence was finally commuted) was pretty horrible. [[spoiler:And it turns out that he can't bring himself to kill the judge anyway.]]
** Sherman's victim, Judge Howard Stimming, might also qualify. [[spoiler: The end of the episode, where he sentences a man to death despite hearing Sherman's story and barely surviving his own kidnapping, is pretty unsettling.]]
* UnfortunateImplications: "Their Own Executioners" is a showcase for excellent performances by Herschel Bernardi (as Joe Monti, a lawyer who's dying of leukemia) and Dean Stockwell (as Joe's client Martin Rosetti, in jail for kicking his wife to death). Unfortunately, the story's attempts to convince us that Martin is a basically decent guy with a valid FreudianExcuse for going off the rails reveal some very dated sexual politics. (Long story short: Martin is a MommasBoy whose [[MyBelovedSmother mother]] is a repressive {{fundamentalist}}, and his wife was adulterous and verbally abusive.) Also, Joe admits to having hit his late wife once, but at the last moment he opened his hand so it was more like a slap. ([[SarcasmMode That makes it all right.]]) All of this might not be so bad if the episode didn't treat Martin's climactic reunion with his young son as a HeartwarmingMoment; is this violent neurotic really going to make a good father when he gets out of prison?
