  • You would call this one a "dramedy", but that is a good thing

    This show was a very fine episode that dealt with the choice that a loved one would face when deciding whether to pull the plug on life support. In this episode, a young woman with a brain tumor who has been suffering for 2 years is left in a vegetative state after an exploratory surgery. Her husband cannot stand to see his wife this way, knowing that this is not what she wanted. He has had to stand by for the last few years unable to do anything, and this time he makes the choice to pull the plug and face criminal prosecution. The story was extremely well-written and well-acted by the actors Crenna and Duke. You could feel the pain in their performances and it really made you think how one would react if in the same situation when there was no hope for a cure. A+ on this one, a more serious episode. Would have to call this one a classic on the drama side of this comedy.moreless
