Nice twist ending. But why would a fashion model marry a quick-tempered dairy farmer? Also, doesn't everyone know that a woman's skirt doens't zip up in the front?

I didn't find much to like in this episode. It was talky and just seemed to drag on and on. The attitude of the police made no sense--and a police officer actually showed a stranger a photo of a corpse (the victim)?? REALLY?!? Also the main character's fake accent got on my nerves.

The advice columnist was so obnoxious I began sympathizing with the murderer. I finally had it with her when she bullied the cop, bragging that her powerful friends -- senators, the governor, etc. -- could cause trouble for the cop if he didn't yield to her demands. I was so sick of her, I stopped listening in the middle of the third act.

I've always disliked Carol Teitel's voice, no matter who she's playing. Most annoying are her "old lady" voice and "elocution teacher" affectation, and bogus accents. She is totally unnatural and over-the-top in most of these episodes, and this one points it out strongly. The zipper can be on the back or side, but almost never in the front, unless it's for decoration. This jerk of a husband isn't worthy of any woman, the ill-tempered cretin. Doreen is a reprehensible "person" and deserves what she gets.
