Legacy of Lousy
9 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The plot of this tale is told elsewhere on this page, and does not bear repeating for the simple fact that is is one of the most muddled and confusing half hours you will ever watch. While the cast is superb, the writing is sub par. The script must have gone through multiple rewrites by several different authors who never bothered to consider previous changes. The female lead wants to leave town the very day after she arrives, and yet, based on all that takes place, it seems she stays for two or three and you are never sure which day is which. Costume changes inexplicably take place. Major characters disappear at crucial junctures in the story with no explanation.

And some of the lines are downright baffling. The cab driver's offer to transport two fares for "not even two or as little as one"--is he giving them a free ride? The idea about birds returning to nests they have never seen is ludicrous; how could you live in and leave a nest you have never seen?

Charles Aidman and Norma Crane are two fine actors, but even they are incapable of rising above the sludgy script, and it makes me angry to see such terrific talent wasted on such abysmal writing. Shame on OSB for releasing this horrible episode.
