  • Ex-convict comes home only to encounter one bad turn after the other.

    7.5
    Very pessimistic episode from the show. I don't know what they were going for other than to show that once you make certain mistakes in life, you pay for the rest of your life for them.



    Convict finally gets released from jail. He goes home but stops at a bar first. He meets an attractive young bimbo who eyes him at easy prey.



    The ex-convict is carrying his first and last check from jail about seventeen hundred dollars worth. Anyways, the bimbo gets the guy so drunk that he passes out. The man wakes up and discovers his been robbed. He asked the bartender, but the loser just asks him to leave.



    The man returns home to his former love looking like a degenerate. The woman berates him from the get go.



    Anyways, cut the long story, the young bimbo is identified as the man's illegitimate daughter and it ends.



    This is really a dark, pessimistic episode from beginning to end.



    Just when you think there's a glimmer of hope something bad happens.



    Ignoring all that it's really well acted.



    However, it's a story that could have been better balanced with positives.moreless
