One actor could have been left out of this episode.
I gave this a high score because of the basic story and the work of the other actors in this episode. But this is another of the episodes from the last year that Zachery Ty Bryan was with the series. It's clear he had picked up the activism that seems to run all through Hollywood. I didn't say informed activism since it's clear that Bryan has bought into only one side of the argument. This last year he spent nearly every episode he was in being upset about some evil in the world that he had the answer to. If it hadn't have been for the rumors that came out of the show after it went off the air it would be easy to assume that these lines were just written for him. But the rumor was he was becoming a bit of a zealot about this kind of thing and was becoming difficult to work with. All that being said; this is a good story about a seemingly vibrant woman in a hospice that Randy has volunteered to work in. The woman that Randy gets assigned to, played by Eileen Heckart, gives Randy an education about the concept of death and dying. But Randy's many lines criticizing the health care industry in the U.S. become a little tiring.
