Monsters gets the Scrooge treatment
7 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A heartless gold digger learns she is about to get scrooged as she anxiously waits for her old, rich lover to kick the bucket...

There's nothing really remarkable about "A New Woman." Building a horror episode around the classic theme of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" certainly sounds like a neat idea but despite having so much promise, the episode doesn't really go anywhere.

Though Linda Thorson is good as the "Scrooge" of this episode, her inevitable transformation at the end is a bit hard to swallow considering that not a lot happens to her through the episode. Her husband's doctor, who's the equivalent of Jacob Marley here, basically takes her to the future, turns her into a zombie, and suddenly, we're expected to believe she's gonna turn over a new leaf. The ending gets even more confusing as the husband miraculously recovers. So does that mean the entire beginning was just a dream? Other than that, there's not much else to this episode.

"A New Woman" is rather slow. It's major weakness is not necessarily that it has a bad story, but that it appears to have almost no story. Not a lot really happens so there really isn't much to write about concerning this episode. Considering some of the really bad plots and crazy twists that have plagued other episodes, I guess it's nice that they decided to take it easy. Dan Butler of "Frasier" is in it for all the TV buffs out there but he really doesn't add much.
