Dancing in the Dark (#5.6)
13 February 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rose has a new boyfriend, Miles who is a college professor. She loves dancing with him but when he incites her to an event with other professors she starts feeling very stupid. This happens even after she invites him over to their house. She even skips a date with him and sends Blanche instead, but Miles keeps on talking about Rose and that he wants to see her again.

A cute episode. Rose feeling inadequate around smart people is very believable. Very well acted and some great scenes made about it, especially with all the college professors. And Miles' compliment at the end was pretty fun as well!
