Quotes

Mrs. Fister: Yes you're so very pale. Mr. Fister used to get that look when he worked too hard in the yard. We always found that a little snort always made him feel so much better. Would you like to come into the house and have a drink? I'm 67 years old, my intentions are honorable.

Weak Entry
4 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

Despite the negative votes, reviewer HEFILM is right: this is a poorly written episode. There's no real suspense because the narrative meanders with no clear climax to build to. Then too, Skip's (Parks) character makes little sense. I'm prepared to suspend disbelief, but only up to a point. That Skip would be a perpetual drunk while also in medical school and a key player on the football team is simply a stretch too far. In fact Skip's so far gone he has only about 10 lines of dialogue total. The rest of the time he's in an alcoholic haze. Also, padding appears evident in the protracted sequence with the coy old lady (McDevitt), whose tangential presence could be easily shortened or eliminated. Nonetheless, when I think about it, an important trademark is present-- the ending is in fact ironic, given the beginning. However, the irony remains purely conceptual, lacking the dramatic impact of better series episodes. Looks to me like the script should have been sent back to re-write. But as things stand, it would be better just to skip Skip.
