Done better, but with a nice denouement
23 August 2010 | by (Asheville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty average episode, and I'm sure they've done this same story before (maybe on the same show). Sometimes the 30-minute anthology format means that you can go back to the same well for the same drink of water, but maybe approach it from a different angle and dress it up to make it seem a little fresher.

In this case, it's well acted and keeps moving, and the 1950's morality is an interesting time-capsule moment. (In a lot of entertainment from this era, the simpler solutions were simply not possible.)

What makes it worth watching is the cheerful acting, and the ending, which is pretty predictable but nonetheless well done and very, very satisfactory.
