Destined for failure
23 April 2005 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This brief lived sitcom starred Patty Duke as Karen Matthews, a woman who just turns 40, who gets involved with Steven Foreman (played by Lewis Smith), a man who is in his mid-20s. The whole thing reminded of two soap opera characters that meet and start to see each other and you wait for when they are finally going to have sex. In the first episode, Karen learns Steven's age by seeing his driver's license and noticing that he was born in 1959 and then figures out his real age. Steven is instantly taken with Karen and wants to see her. Karen decides to continue to see Steven and then THE episode finally arrives when they have sex and after that, it had nothing more to offer.

No question you will never find this sitcom released on any DVD. For the most part, while the storyline kept you on the edge of your chair from the beginning, once the "sex" episode aired, that was it.
