I really felt that I had "seen" the inside of a person who was uncontrollably violent...especially to those closest to him.
Anyone who was "on the cusp" of feeling/acting as Paul Stamper did would be almost forced to notice the danger signs within him/her self.
I for one, am glad that the producer didn't put a "politically correct", childish warning or disclaimer in the show....it would have no effect on other violent people and personally, I don't need their moralizing or warnings.....realism speaks a thousand times more effectively than blatant warnings.
It was really nice to see Cindy Williams. She is aging gracefully & showing her talent depth.
Only one upsetting fact bothered me.....these people, victim's and perpetrator, were young....35 years?....This dangerous man will be out in far less than that, and the victim's will undoubtedly go through their fear...all over again.
