Adultery strikes in academia. Loretta Swit plays a college professor who finds that her baby-sitter has fallen in love with her architect husband, Joel (Silver Spoons) Higgins. Melissa Sue (Little House on the Prairie) Anderson is lovely as the dazzled freshman. And Swit really does seem to have found life after M*A*S*H. She plays the wife with understanding and crisp efficiency. Still, the sanctimonious script is not as with-it as it pretends. This is TV-land, after all.
