    Two busy business types are given a chance in paradise, to live as we say we long to ... free of the rat race and burden. The only requirement - leave their old lives behind and accept the new one. But, temptation comes in many forms.

    This has been one of my favorite episodes since I first saw it years ago. Typical cheesy acting, but that is expected for the Twilight Zone, as is heavy concepts and kick-butt metaphors. It's not just make believe. We get that chance every minute of every day to live in peace and happiness. To put life in its grand scheme :-) But, "he" is seductive, even via the banal. The sin of self. How often do we pass over gifts and create our own unhappiness, chaos and stumbling blocks? Twilight Zone rocked then and rocks still. Right on! :-)moreless

    Now this is why I watch this type of series...

    This is a fine example of Twilight Zone (2002). One of the better episodes in the series. Though I often wonder where this anti-technology idea developed within the Sci Fi genre. Perhaps because many or most Sci Fi fans identify with technology, it is to give us the alternative viewpoint. In other words show technology as the villain rather than the savior. Nonetheless, the episode is a great one. Two very modern workaholics are given the chance to escape the pressures of modern life and get back to a simple existence. Yet one of them, tempted by technology, simply can't resist.moreless
