  • Ahh, if they all were this good, this show would have stayed on the air for at least a 2nd season...

    • Host: (opening narration) Name: Richard Almares. Job description: Pool guy. In just a moment, Richie's mundane daily routine will become a never-ending nightmare, one that will give new meaning to the word victim. That nightmare begins now in The Twilight Zone.

    • Host: (closing narration) Richie Almares' prison has no walls, no bars, not even a single guard. It's simply a state of mind from which there can be no escape. Sweet dreams, Richie.

    Notes (2)

    • Lou Diamond Phillips' character in this episode, "Richie," is the same character name of perhaps his most famous movie role in La Bamba.

    • This episode bears a strong resemblence to "Shadow Play" from the original series, with Dennis Weaver as a condemend man convinced that he is suffering from a recurring dream of his own execution, in which the characters keep changing roles. "Shadow Play" was remade in the 1985 version with Peter Coyote in the lead role.
