I Found Them Quite Attractive
15 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an episode featuring two half hour offerings featuring strong women. In the first, a couple lives in a literal natural history museum. She is a hunter, geologist, naturalist, etc. He is a whiny philanderer who she tolerates. Somehow, he has hooked up with a blonde bombshell who he sneaks off to see. He decided to join his wife on a rock climbing, geological expedition, where he plans to push her off a cliff. This leads to some serious complications. The woman in the second episode is much more sympathetic. She has been a college librarian her whole working career. She is obviously very kind and very competent. When the head librarian position comes up, she is the natural choice. But instead, the board hires a man with more letters after his name. He is also a self centered tyrant. She watches as he decimates the department. We are also aware that he is a lecherous man who is hiring pretty young women to replace the staff. One day an opportunity presents itself. I will mention one failing. Boris shows up at the conclusion to explain how things went after the episode. I don't know if the network had one morals thing going on, but really is anticlimactic.
