Overdone
5 November 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Rhue plays a tragic figure, plagued by a potentially fatal illness, plus an over protective brother (Drivas) and manipulating father (Kruschen). Buzz is encouraged by well-meaning dad to bring love into Rhue's life, but brother violently opposes any manipulation. So conflicts abound.

The series strengths are overdone here, I think. The storyline is more contrived than usual, especially the poorly staged action scene with the bulldozer pinning Buzz. Then too, Kruschen really overacts in scene chewing style, along with poetic dialog that's spread on big time. By and large, acting, staging, and scripting, were key series strengths, setting the entries apart from competition of the day. Here, however, series strengths are carried too far, causing melodrama to unfortunately override the story's human interest. See if you agree.
