  • Marvelous work by Constantine and Young

    9.0
    Michael Constantine did a terrific job as the alcoholic doctor. His character was not at all stereoptyped, and displayed a wide range of emotion. He displayed genuine sympathy when star football player Alex Carpenter begs him for a clean bill of health. When Jonathan confronts him about Alex's pain pill addiction, Constantine projected a very intimidating and forceful defensiveness. In the hospital, his tears were truly moving without a trace of phoniness.



    Ray Young was outstanding as the drug-addicted pro football star who fears losing his position with the team to a young recruit. This part could so easily have lapsed into stereotype. But Young, like Constantine, created a multi-dimensional character that was very moving to watch.



    Michael Landon's climactic scene with Alex was brilliant. I would never have expected an angel to literally bully an addict into finding his pills. It was one of the best scenes in the episode.moreless
