  • Slow-paced and maudlin

    This was one of the worst episodes, hands down. First, it featured a completely predictable plot that took FOREVER to unwind because the pacing was slower than syrup in winter, added to the most ridiculous over-emotional acting performed by William Shatner (who's a ham anyways), all topped off by the relentless and generic theme -- love conquers emotional distance. Comparing this to other episodes like "Demon with a Glass Jaw", makes me wonder how they were the same show -- apparently the quality control was a hit-or-miss affair. I suppose this episode was groundbreaking, however, for bored housewives who needed a little something different mixed with their soap opera!
