    not quite

    By noman, Aug 22, 2014

    This theme could be adopted to almost any war episode. Rod Serling served in the Phillippines and had nightmares about it. Too bad instead of telling as it was they had to drop to fictional foresight theme

    worse than death

    By OmarCayenne, Sep 24, 2011

    This episode demonstrates graphically that there are indeed worse things than death. Imagine having to go through a battle campaign with a "gift" such as that of the main character here; at some point it would have to seem a relief to see your face light up in the mirror as well. The moment where the guy says "War stinks" (as he's going through the dead man's mementos) in one of my favorites from the series. Also a host of familiar faces in this one: Dick York (his 2nd TZ), Barney Phillips, Paul Mazursky and even Warren Oates in a cool cameo toward the end.moreless

    I Have Been Watching Twilight Zone since I can Remember..It's Great, The awesome actors/actresses were always a slight surprise, never knew who would star in the next episode...

    The PurPle Testament Is One Of My Alltime Favorites!!!It's A Purfect Specimen Of What The Twilight ZOne Is; A Secret Wish, Your worst nightmare, Everything you crave, All You'll Never Have..

    This Has Been The Most Constant As Far as entertainment, No Matter What My Mood The Twilight Zone Cures My Cravings.. You Never Know Who The Star OR Co-Star May Be..And No Matter How Many Times I've Seen each Episode They Are Just As Excellent.. I especially Liked This One (The Purple Testament) Because Of the War Theme..And The Fact That William Reynolds Was The Star..I Have Seen Alot Of Handsome Men From That decade But He Is JUst Too Beautiful!!!!moreless
