Critical Rating: AAA
Billy Dee plays an obsessive/compulsive screwer of women who dies when a barbell plate gets dropped on his face (would I kid you?) at the local health club. In limbo, Dee is told by his life counselor, Bob, (who dresses in a tuxedo) like a VSDA show marketing guy) that he's flunked life, Dee's only hope for retribution is to go back and put some zest into the life of dull Freida Winklehoffer (Shanna McCullough). Naturally, McCullough's the only one who can see him – a situation that could have been humorously exploited much better.
In a surprisingly good script, Dee winces and screws up his face like Michael J. Fox – much too distracting, however the scenes are pretty well thought out with interesting variety and location. The sex scenes, highly romanticized, should well satisfy the cravings of the couples' market. A pretty good show.
