A wonderful and entertaining episode
22 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mary Ann Mobley is exquisite as a writer who comes to realize the violent nature of the her stories. By placing herself inside one of her stories as the heroine, she learns first-hand of the negative message she is conveying, and that it is neither entertaining nor spiritually uplifting. With Mr. Roarke as her mentor, the writer, Florence, undergoes a spiritual awakening which renews her creative drive and redirects her writing. Pandering to the audience, Florence had lost her way artistically and needed something to help her break out of the creative rut that was ruining her writing. By experiencing one of her own stories, she experienced the seediness of the characters she was creating while at the same time creating the opportunity for forming fulfilling emotional attachments. Ricardo Mantalban is excellent as the host who sets up the fantasy and gives Florence the opportunity to further grow and develop as an artist and as a person.
