The most horrifying thing I've ever seen on TV- (besides the news)
29 April 2007 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Sorry I can't add much to kbearo-1's excellent comments. It says something when I can remember a television episode for so many years. I was nearly traumatized for life- it's that good (?!). It gives me chills just to think about it, especially when you apply it metaphorically. Yikes! I was heartened to see how many things Richard Thomas has done (thank you IMDb). Like too many other folks, the first thing that comes to mind is "John Boy". Pity. He's a fine, versatile actor. Anyone know what he's been doing lately? I trust he can still work whenever he feels like it. And Geraldine Page? I would crawl naked over ground glass just to see her read the phone book. She shines in every single thing I've ever seen her in, and of course this is no exception. p.s. If you should get the opportunity to see this, I'd recommend doing it with a six-pack or bottle and someone to talk with afterwards.
