Did You Know?


Louise: Weren't you watching?
Janet: Of course, I was watching upstairs on the television until the damn picture went out.
Louise: Janet, when are you going to join the rest of us in the 20th century and get cable? The picture is so much better. Plus, you get HBO and everything. It would really improve the quality of your life.

Cable romance is disconnected and axed! Scrambled into different body parts!
16 March 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This crypt episode from 1991 titled "Spoiled" is well done and entertaining and the plot takes a surprise revenge twist at the end. You have Faye Grant as a bored and lonely spouse who's husband is an all work and no play doctor who happens to be working on a new medical invention. So with no time at all for passion play the Grant character's only escape is by watching hot and steamy daytime soap TV, then when a mishap occurs with a TV losing it's signal she calls Abel the Cable Guy(Anthony LaPaglia). This cable guy is willing and able to play and he will hook up more than just premium cable! Soon a very hot and passionate love affair develops that is very hot and enjoyed, but like so many guilty pleasures it takes an unexpected twisted end. As you the viewer see the cable romance becomes scrambled into different body parts! Overall good crypt episode one of the better ones of season three.
