RECKLESS/Episode 1/Intro by Russell Baker
Tonight we begin something quite different from our usual presentation.
At first you may think it's going to be a story of tender family relationships.
Then you're aware that a comedy is in progress.
Then it suddenly seems like a suspense story about an unlikely love affair that may have explosive consequences.
Then everything swerves into farce.
And all this in just the first two-hour installment. There are two more to come.
A word of caution to anybody who's looking for high literary entertainment or moral uplift: Reckless is the kind of show you watch purely for the sheer fun of it. It often seems to be a satire about the havoc the telephone spreads through modern life.
The England seen here is a land where everybody -- well, everybody but our hero -- has a cell phone at the ready -- and will use it at the slightest provocation.
Alexander Graham Bell, what have you done to us!?
