A Tender and Special Episode
15 June 2014 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

(The only real spoiler here is my mention of time travel.)

Time travel can be handled in many different ways. One of my favorites is when this journey is taken unintentionally, when the protagonist has no control or expectation that it will occur.

This is such an episode. And it was handled well.

Eriq La Salle is a unique actor. He has a quiet strength and sober countenance which always brings a welcome sensitivity to his roles, when they warrant this. And he did this here.

The story has been told before in different guises in literature and film. But here the needs and events of a man's life intersect the needs of another time. What is the reason for this return to another time? This man asks himself questions similarly to how Quantum Leap's main protagonist handled such things.

The result is a soulful episode for those who welcome a bit of heart.
