Tough, uncompromising TV-made drama...
10 October 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Conrad Bromberg wrote this teleplay from a treatment by himself and William Wood involving Howard Hesseman as a perfectly despicable rapist, one who avoids doing time in the jug due to one of those convenient legal loopholes. His female victims won't stand for it, of course, and ban together to fight fire with fire. Interesting, if by-now familiar scenario, bolstered by good performances from Kate Nelligan and Hesseman, no-nonsense direction from Jerrold Freedman. Nelligan always lends an air of urgent believability to her characters, and the actress is splendid when she gets her ire up. Hesseman, a comfortable television icon from his days at "WKRP", does a complete about-face here, portraying the sexual assailant with slovenly, slobbering fierceness. Taut drama is pretty straightforward for network TV, and does not shy away from the touchy subject matter at hand.
