Quite the Racket
25 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess if one had the gall of this guy, he might just get away with it. An easy course nowadays would be to claim an attempted sexual assault. A dose of this medicine would have kept him tied up in knots for some time. Of course, this was the fifties. The housewives were dependent on the guys at the office and knew they had to toe the line or else. It's a pathetic commentary on the writers that this is the way they saw women's roles. That at the conclusion, we see a neighborhood of clones of the main character. The fun of the episode is that we ache for retribution against this jerk. He is actually a felon and an extortionist and deserves a lot more than he gets. It's a pretty weak episode but it has a few moments.
