  • Robert Forster plays Garry, a married man whose life is at a dead end, but when the milkman comes to town his life changes for better and worse.

    Really predictable episode and not that scary to begin with until the end. Forster plays Garry an artists of sorts whose life sucks. He can´t pay the bills, his career is flaky at best and his wife is on his case.

    He hears a tale about how the Milkman in town has the ability to grant wishes. He thinks it`s all nonsense until the messages he leaves in the milk bottle become true. First he gets a raise, and then his wife is soon pregnant.

    The last scene was supposed to be scary but I couldn´t help but laugh as the ¨creature¨seemed a bit too tamed. An ending I would have taken is for the thing to kill both Garry and his wife. Maybe that was the plan but the writers opted for the latter. An ok episode but again not reall that great.
