Did You Know?


The title of this episode borrows its wording from the game show To Tell the Truth (1956). In that show, a person of some notoriety, but not visually well-known, was one of three contestants, the other two being impostors. All three answered questions from a celebrity panel which in turn had to guess which of the three was the actual person. When the guesses had all been made, the host, Bud Collyer, asked of the contestants, "Will the real [guest name] please stand up". See more »


When Devalos is reviewing the security footage from the bank of the identity thief Allison met, the time stamp has a time of 03:44:02+16. However, most surveillance systems will have the time in 24-hour format, meaning that the incident happened at almost 4AM in the morning, when banks are closed and it's still dark outside. For systems that use 12-hour formats, they would include AM/PM, which was not shown. See more »

Pretty good episode...
12 April 2019 | by Bob-724See all my reviews

This episode approaches dark comedy in a way that Medium rarely does. There are two murders, but both are treated lightly--even humorously. The basic plot is that an attractive young woman has killed her ancient husband for his money. We learn that her lover, a computer hacker, is stealing people's identities and cleaning out their bank accounts in order to buy off a juror in her trial. Everywhere Allison looks she sees these people whose identity was stolen as the identity thief, Fred Rovick. Diedrich Bader does a wonderful job playing all of the characters, both male and female--even channeling Joe Dubois and Lee Scanlon. In the end, we even see him in a bikini. The psychological trauma of that experience aside, it is an unusual and entertaining episode.
