Picks and Pans Review: Death Penalty

UPDATED 01/21/1980 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 01/21/1980 at 01:00 AM EST

NBC (9-11 p.m.)

Colleen Dewhurst is a sympathetic shrink who tries to save from execution a teenager who has been accused of murdering two youths. The trouble is that Dewhurst just walks through this made-for-TV movie, and any point that's supposed to be made about capital punishment somehow gets lost.
