Aweak Story with Flat Characters
20 May 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

A very weak and peculiar story about a crippled man (Warden) who is in charge of looking after a sexy young woman (Helm) who he lives with. Despite his very surly exterior he is found to be quite fond of her even though all do is bicker with each other. She spends the day looking for buried money that he has supposedly hidden somewhere on the property while he fights off a road construction crew that is intent on building a highway near their home. Somehow Todd and Buzz get mixed up in all of this, but their impact on the story is slight.

There is an interesting side story involving one of the road crew member's and his fixation with Helm, but the resolution to this is not very satisfying. The other twists are foreseeable and the main characters need to be more fleshed out. The 'surprise' ending does not have the intended impact nor is it all that clever.

The only interesting irony of this episode is the fact that there is a very major standoff between a homeowner and a construction crew that somehow never catches the attention or the coverage of the outside media. These days that is something that just wouldn't happen (although it would be nice if it did.)

Grade: C
