Educational in its way

A drunken college professor dies accidentally, but not before the mother of a striptease artist (as they were then known as) he has befriended has fooled him into leaving the daughter his estate. The ensuing legalistic conflict goes beyond actual law to confront guilt, morality, morals, and the hypocrisy governing those in the "adult industry" who are desired yet despised by those not above seeking their favours. This was one of the better, and more mature, episodes in the first season of a good series. That the stripper in question was shown - and realistically so - as a decent, bright person trying to better herself makes one question stereotypes. Salome Jens was particularly good as the stripteaser.
