A Man's Midlife Crisis
14 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John (William Windom) tells his wife Ellen (Joan Hotchkis) that their life has become monotonous and dull. He fantasizes of a James Bond-esque lifestyle with lovely woman and espionage intrigue (very relatable- what man hasn't?). At work, John's trapped feelings are furthered by lack of creative control from his editor Hamilton Greeley (Harold J. Stone). John daydreams of "escaping from reality" and being able to travel to exotic locales. Interrupted, John surmises, "Paradise is up here (points to his brain/mind); it's not someplace you can take an airplane to." His daydreams of a James Bond lifestyle returns with a recurring theme of mentioned dragons. When John returns home he finds Ellen in a lovely dress with news they are home alone. When his fantasy returns, which will win?

I didn't find this as an episode with much comedy, but the plot is fine. It's the familiar midlife crisis story, but one grounded in reality and presented in a way that's quite relatable for a man.
