    In typical 'Lou Grant' style this episode exposes a social problem (domestic abuse) in a way that you can't miss the point the writer is trying to make. At the same time the dialogue is witty, with more than the usual amount of jokes, especially in the scenes during Lou's housewarming party. It makes the show slightly schizophrenic, yet enjoyable. But then there's the rather odd ending. (Spoilers, if you haven't seen the episode.) The colleague at the Trib who mistreated his wife, gets off with a rather weak punishment, as if there are different rules for ordinary people than for reporters It's supposed to show that Lou cares for his people, but it made me uncomfortable.moreless
