I appreciated this episode of "The Paper Chase" because, sadly, things like this do occur. At my oldest daughter's university, they had a similar situation where a student killed himself--most likely due to the very high pressure of being in a elite school.
When the show begins, a first-year student in the dorm is found dead--having hung himself in his room. Soon the dead guy's father arrives on campus looking for answers. He is not on a vendetta or anything...he just wants to understand WHY. The remainder of the show consists of the man allowing friends and associates of his dead son to talk and tell him about his last days. What I appreciated is that it didn't blame people--even with the father, he did perhaps pressure his son but he was not some stereotypical jerk.
Worth seeing and very good EXCEPT for the songs. They sounded as if they were performed on a sound stage and really seemed like filler.
