When the Bleeding Won't Stop
19 September 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Eleven-year old Davey can't do normal boy activities because of hemophilia. Dr. Styner works to stop the bleeding after Davey falls and cuts himself. There's the usual operating room drama and informative voice-over where we learn about what was then (and maybe now) an incurable genetic disease. There's a good subplot where older sister Florie worries whether she should marry because only women pass along the genetic defect. Actress Paul is quite good in the conflicted role. My only reservation is with Davey's stilted dialog—did they have to make him sound so much like an adult. Otherwise, a typical quality episode.
