A man goes to work for two sisters- will not end well for the man
20 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pete Sievers had his wife die some four months ago and having a hard time going on with his life. He has turned to drinking to relieve himself of the pain and has become the laughing stock of Dodge. After his farm burns and he has used up all his money he finds that Chester will try to help. It will not be long until Pete takes a job as a farm hand with the spinster Nell Schuler and her 20'ish year old sister Leah.

But when Pete gets out to the Schuler farm he runs into two sisters that are totally different and each has a liking to Pete Sievers. Nell is an older sister that made a promise to her dead father to protect her young sister Leah from all outside activities until she is old enough. Nell is taking this literally as she refuses to let Leah go to town or see any men. Pete will learn too late that Nell is not the overbearing sister but may actually be mentally sick.

Even though Nancy Wickwire was great playing the domineering Nell, the actress that played Leah was poor. Jennifer Billingsley, that played Leah, is either not taking the show seriously or she needs a class of 'acting 101'. From her first scary appearance of the show to her last camera angle, it just did not go well for her or the viewer. I liked the concept of the story but it loss much value dragging the early part of the show way too long. An average show at best.
