Clever Little Story About Finding Self Confidence
4 January 2017 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Pharmacy worker Andrea Moffett (Pamela Bellwood) spends most of her free time reading romance novels and fantasizing about her own romantic life, while somewhat oblivious to the available prospects around her. One evening, she takes in what appears to be a stray cat that turns out to be a French roué (Page Fletcher), who's been effectively condemned to roam throughout time in the body of a cat, and who's more than slightly interested in plying his wiles on Andrea.

Christy Marx's script cleverly counterpoints Andrea's lack of self-confidence and her desire to escape into her romantic fantasies with the unabashedly hedonistic tendencies of the roué and of her own co-worker (Gwynyth Walsh, who plays a critical role in the final plot twist). The story takes Andrea down a road where she becomes more emotionally dependent upon the roué for her self-worth, before finally making her necessary turn for the better; at the same time, the final plot twist is a marvelous two-fer, that pretty much defines the term "just desserts." Bellwood is very good here, believably giving us a woman who comes dangerously close to allowing herself to being defined in a submissive way through her sexuality, while at the same time presenting us with a likable and intelligent protagonist. Fletcher is also very good, giving us just enough smarm to make Bellwood's attraction to him relatable, while still more or less acting as the human equivalent of an unfixed tomcat.

While there are no great moral lessons here, the episode is a lot of fun and, as for that twist, ouch!
