Nobody has commented yet so I'll chime in. The premise that the brother was cheated out of $250,000 by his financial advisor started promising, especially since it is based on a one hundred year old story which means it would be about $2 million in today's funds, but the story fell flat. I couldn't feel any sympathy for any of the characters, (even when I admire Fred Gwynne, this is his weakest, unremarkable performance). Should have gotten a clue when the introduction said this was based on a Henry James story. "Oh, Oh!" I had thought, because the Henry James stories I had tried reading before I never finished because they were tedious reading and quickly lost interest in them.


I did not care for this episode. Not one likable or relatable character. The happy couple were destined to misery- she nagging him for lacking character and he brow beating her in a misguided attempt to prove he has character.
