It seems funny that this episode was considered so "controversial" back in 1992, whereas nobody would think anything of it today. I guess that shows how far we've come in the past 21 years.

It was very reminiscent of a scene in The Music Man, where Professor Harold Hill is getting the townfolk all excited about the band equipment. And I think it was a deliberate reference to that as...

The funny thing about this episode was that I interpreted the whole thing to be a dream. After Sam has his "dance with the devil" he wakes up and he's at the bottom of the staircase again, where he...

I just looked it up - it was on against "Anything But Love," a sitcom with Richard Lewis and Jamie Lee Curtis. I'm pretty sure that's what my (married couple) friends decided they liked watching...

Sorry, but the part where Sam is talking in the little boy voice totally cracked me up. He sounded like Stuart in the Mad TV skits. Not meaning to knock Bakula's acting - he's generally wonderful and...

I think this episode was a gamble that paid off. It was risky but well worth it after the very dramatic episode that preceded it (Raped). I can understand how a lot of fans would protest the idea and...

I thought this episode would be harder to watch than it was. It was a tough subject to tackle and it was well handled, hitting all the emotional beats just right. Also a bit of a mystery story, in...

You know, it's almost as if Cissy was just fated to die that night, and Sam is somehow cheating fate. Sam prevents her from going back home and then a killer shows up to get her. In fact there are...
