Storyline

Sylvia is a young woman who we think is contemplating suicide. Her ex-husband, Peter, married her for money. When he forged a check, her father agreed not to prosecute if he divorced her. Now Sylvia is again in touch with Peter, and wants him back. Peter calls her father and tells him that he will stay out of her life for a price. Sylvia's father tells her about his blackmail scheme, and she tells him that she bought a gun to use on Peter if they did not get back together. She goes to her room alone and is followed by her father, who is worried about her and tries to retrieve the gun. Written by Anonymous

One of the worst...
1 August 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I agree wholeheartedly with the other review commenting on the weird casting. So weird, in fact, that it was impossible to get into this episode after the first few moments. I thought I was mishearing the dialogue when Ann Todd called John McIntire "Daddy". Or maybe it was a case of wife and husband calling each other Mummy and Daddy. Or something. But when it became clear that she was, indeed, playing the daughter of a man only two years her senior, it just got really creepy. Add to that her strong English accent and his American one, with no explanation in the story...

By this time were just aghast at how off-kilter everything was. It was impossible to buy into this story at all because of these discrepancies. Whoever cast this episode must have been drunk or bribed or who knows...

I really enjoy this series and have been catching up with them on YouTube. This one is just preposterous.
