The story I saw in this series was really cool.
7 January 2002 | by (Phx, AZ) – See all my reviews

I have been having a hard time finding info on this series. I saw a episode from this series on HBO one day that was part of this "Lifestories" compilation. It was good and very realistic. The story I saw was a true story-after it aired there was a brief commentary by the actual date-rape victim. I believe Ali Larter played the victim. Anyways she was good and I was impressed on how real-life she made that role seem. Anyways I am curious to see the rest of the shows in this series.
