A fine early entry in the American PLAYHOUSE series on PBS
This was part of an early season of PBS's occasional series of longform drama, American PLAYHOUSE, which served as co-producer/funding source for a number of good-to-excellent "indy" films (and some videotape presentations) over the next decade or so. This one, involving a cartoonist who finds something like love with a new womanfriend, is mostly memorable twenty years after seeing it for its fine seduction scene to the Normal's recording of "Warm Leatherette." Otherwise, a very pleasant and witty little drama, and probably more surprising in terms of a 1984 telefilm than it would be to anyone today...imagine something similar to the Wayne Wang-directed SLAMDANCE without an attempt at a crime-drama plot.
