Another Great Show That Should have Lasted Longer
20 November 2017 | by jawlawSee all my reviews

The 50's and 60's saw a lot of great shows that, for one reason or another, only lasted one year. Someone needs to release a DVD anthology of some of those shows, for many have substantial entertainment value. This show is one of those great shows. Each week was a new story with a new character for Barbara to play. They were generally gripping and very entertaining. I think, specifically of "The Choice" with Robert Horton where a deranged man terrorizes Barbara in a remote pub. It was clearly the inspiration (indeed the rough draft) for "The Shining" but I don't think it is ever recognized as such. If you can get your hands on episodes, you won't be disappointed.
