Mooning It

May 24, 1987

I celebrate Low's article.

Precisely why "Moonlighting" was such a good show was its stance that sex is a big deal, that the prospect of two people falling in love is a big deal.

Having Maddie and David consummate their affair in such an unemotional, unattached manner has all at once brought them to climax (forgive the pun), and yet destroyed all the richness in their relationship.

I suspect the writers will realize they put the cart before the horse and will attempt a storyline that returns to repartee and romance, following with a show of true character vulnerability, and then, only then, back to bed-- this time with all the risk and surrender about which Low wrote.
