Yikes! Meredith Baxter-Birney sure has taken a radical turn since Family Ties. Last month she was a psycho killer on USA, now she’s a passionate, desperate adulteress. Her sexual awakening costs her dearly, as she loses her marriage (to Nick Mancuso), her lover (married doctor Derek de Lint) and. for a time, her sanity. It’s a credible, nicely detailed drama, but everyone is so angry, anguished and violent that it makes for grim viewing.
