She Should Be More Than a Mere Stage Prop
8 September 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

I get the feeling that there's a powerful story buried here had writers Dunkel and Meston developed the story around the severe and scary-looking Blossom (Charlene Brooks). Her upright bearing and period hair-do appear straight out of a Hawthorne novel about repressed Puritain passions. Instead they went with a wife-hunting John Dehner made-up in an unconvincing fright wig and pestilential mole. He's supposed to be at least age 60 and not exactly an answer to a maiden's dreams, especially Kitty's, who he's determined to make his wife. There's an undercurrent of tongue-in-cheek that alternates not very successfully with the more somber developments. The result is uneven, to say the least. Kitty, at least, gets to needle Matt about his lack of ardor before the writers usher them out the door. Nonetheless, the severe Blossom character points to a world of drama rarely explored by a series of that day or any day.
