    9.0
    In this episode Lynn attempts to recover from the shock of the formal end of her marriage by dating a neighbor with carnal intent. The result is predictable. Daphnie Zuniga being an old hand at seduction scenes (Melrose Place) manages to display the combination of desperation and despair required by this story line.



    Less convincing is Torrey DeVitto as Karen. Playing a young woman who blatantly slept with a man who could further her modeling career and used overt sexuality to make another date Ms. DeVitto was required to play a woman wronged when Kevin’s assistant called the restaurant to tell her he can’t make the date. First she runs up his Kevin’s tab at the restaurant and then goes to his apartment building for a confrontation. This characters overreaction (or is it insecurity) requires a deft touch that this actress seems to lack.



    Also required to play a woman wronged, Sarah Foret who portrays Sophie is convincing when she learns that Nicky had bet that he could seduce her before midterms. The only thing that rang untrue was that Sophie was Drunk just before paisley reveals the bet and suddenly she is sober as she goes off on Nicky. He clarity could be explained by adrenalin but then she reverts to her drunken state when she mounts the stage and addresses the assembled mixture of under dress teens and lecherous artists.



    Aside form the ending where the three Kerr women go for a walk (as if Sophie could still walk) the episode was entertaining and consistent with the previous offerings. The best performance was in a supporting capacity by Kathleen Munroe as Annabelle who was thoroughly believable as the best friend waiting for Gideon to get a clue and realize her true feelings.



    All in all “Over Exposure” was another chapter in this new addition to the soap opera genre.

    • Lynn: … we need to talk. You (Sophie) have a story about why you came crawling thought that window; and you (Karen) need to tell me why you felt like you had to lie about that date and I have to tell you about something that came in the mail this week.
