Re: A great way to spend 55 minutes
"The Visitor" would be a bad call at this time, unfortunately. She lost her dad to cancer a few months ago. I fear that episode might pull on the heartstrings a bit too hard right now.
I agree with your assessment. My dad died 42 years ago and I have problems with "The Visitor". My situation was similar to Jake's (mother already dead), and the episode reminds me that I didn't have the benefit of Dad's advice when becoming an adult.
