Cycle of Life
20 February 2013 | by tacsharp-613-222911See all my reviews

I think this was one of the finest hours of television ever written. It deals with 4 different stages of life – birth, becoming an adult (Fiscus turns 30), aging past a parent's mortality, and death. I thought the last two story lines were the most compelling as Dr. Craig deals with a 50-something birthday that takes him past his father's lifespan ("the footprints end here"). And the final scene finds the orderly Coolidge rocking a frail, elderly patient in his arms at the end of the man's life (Charles Lane, who most people would recognize from It's a Wonderful Life, Petticoat Junction or the Beverly Hillbillies). Haven't seen that episode in more than 25 years, and just the memory of it chokes me up.
