informative though historically not quite accurate

This is an excellent episode for teenage daughters to watch to learn
about the dangers of rape and how quickly a Dr. Jekyll type guy every
girl dreams of can turn into a Mr Hyde that is every girl's nightmare.
It has just one problem: It was cast in the wrong time period. I went
to college in the late 70s-mid 80s and I can tell you that by 1982
there was much more knowledge and understanding about rape than is
pictured here. For instance, the lack of understanding that rape is an
act of violence and not an act of sex, the girls blaming themselves,
the police and administration unwilling to do anything, girls being
blamed for what they wore, or bringing guys to their apartments,
etc..this was not part of the 80s time frame...now if the episode had
been cast in the early to mid 70s it would have been far more accurate
as the understanding at that time was much like was pictured here...
nonetheless the episode has redeeming value as stated above....
