Tight perfectly acted 30 minutes of Bliss
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm amazed at what Hitchcock was able to do in a 30 minute network format; what most Directors are unable to do today in two hours with a huge budget and overpaid actors. The tight script; intelligent script that today is but a memory of the past burns very deeply watching an episode like this. I could not have spent 30 minutes of my life better than watching this episode and only wish I was born and alive when this episode aired for the first time. What is most telling is the way the plot evolves without any obvious formula. I wish I could understand what happened in America; and why today people will watch CSI and other trivial crime dramas that are devoid of any content of substance. Watching this episode reminded me of the decline of America and the decline of culture.
