  • Good, but not great.

    Season 5 of Tales From The Crypt started with a bang. A very good first episode, that makes you slightly disappointed of the second one.
    My basic objection to this episode is that, even though it was a story we all have seen before, it could have been exploited in a much more compelling way. The jealous husband with the younger wife is a common figure on TV, and Hector Elizondo did give his character a nervous cuality that brought it some depth. But Patsy Kensit did not sell it. Her perfomance seamed a little stiff, it just didn´t went with the story. And some great secondary characters could not compensate for the lack of interest that the young bride created.
    The highlight: Sam Waterston as the shady detective, and John Shea (the old Lex Luthor from the Lois and Clark series) as the priest.
    An average episode, with a few good details, but not one of those stories that you´ll remember a few months from now
