VALENTINE'S DAY SPECIAL, ANOTHER WORLD
ANOTHER WORLD tried to break out from the daytime mold with its heavily promoted, two-day "Valentine To Singles." Head Writer Donna Swajeski promised these episodes would celebrate "single-hood." Yeah, if you're a man. Ms. Swajeski and her writers implied that single men are a hot property who can bask in the attention of man-hungry women, and single women have no identity or purpose without a man. We were treated to scenes of women cringing with self-conciousness as they dined alone, while men took the same situation and turned it to their advantage. Men complained that women wanted to pin them down, while the women complained that the men didn't want to commit. So what else is new? The shows sent a very clear message to its female audience: without a man you're incomplete. Some celebration.
