Done in a classy and film noir type of a way mixed with strangeness and camp.
27 August 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode titled "Everybody Needs a Little Love" is quite different from many it's not as spooky and it's done in a classy film noir type of way and the performance from the classy and professional Jerry Orbach(TV's hit "Law and Order") makes it a watch. Orbach is Robert who's alcohol drinking buddy Curtis(Richard Portnow)both find themselves lonely at their middle age and they need love as the bar drinking and talks are getting old. Enter a strange yet sharply looking woman in fact she's a stature mannequin(Teresa L. Jones)she becomes the lady friend of Curtis and she captivates him to the point to where he believes she's real! The episode takes a mystery type twist in a detective P.I. form similar to films of the 40's and 50's watch for the twist. Overall nothing special just an average one.
