This half-hour anthology show usually featured a woman in hardship, musing about might-have-beens, or fighting for her life, such as a woman being visited by the ghost of the child she never had, a housewife discovering her own courage while battling a gang of thugs, a woman being visited by the romance novel hero in her head, or playing dangerous games of theft and sex with her own husband. In the third season, the format became more open-ended and generally Twilight-Zonish, such as the man who thinks he might be a werewolf. Written by
I loved the episode with Amanda Plummer, I'd give anything to have it on tape or DVD. I've never seen such an intelligent, sensitive story told so well, and the acting was great too. I didn't watch the rest of the series, but I can recommend the episode "A Type of Love Story" without reservation. I wish quality was the criteria for putting things out on DVD, this would have been released long ago.
