Next Sunday, June 20, “And Jill Came Tumbling After” – A family of small-town criminals is shaken when their father is sentenced to a surprisingly long prison term, leaving mom to take care of the criminally enterprising brood. In an effort to keep her kids out of trouble, she decides it’s time for the family to go straight, despite their best efforts to maintain the status quo
There are two rules that the West family has always lived by: Do not invade people’s homes, at least not when they’re in them, and never, ever use violence — unless there is no other option. When Wolf West (David James Elliott) is sentenced to a four-year prison term instead of the expected four months, Cheryl West (Virginia Madsen) realizes she’s going to be a single mom for the next few years. With the family coming apart at the seams, Cheryl decides that it’s time for them to get out of the family business altogether. However it’ll prove a challenging task for every member of the family, since a life of crime is all they’ve known.
