  • The Zone receives a "comics" touch.

    The director in this episode took the Twilight Zone to a new level: comics. I felt as if i were watching "Dick Tracy, the movie" (1990) Which is one of the worse movies i have ever seen ever. WE have this comics like photography all the time and the characters look and talk cartoonish. The story is not that bad, but with the whole tales from the crypt feeling it is very hard for you to think that you are watching a good story, not because Tales From the Crypt is bad, but because the story is very weak, it doesn't come any close to it. Not a bad episode but it is not godd either, it just is.
  • Wonderful - they blew the budget on the last episode!

    "It's just a simple, little story," is how Harlan Ellison described it but fortunately the producers at TZ3 decided to do this simple, little story justice by shooting it as best they could.

    The acting is as sharp as the dialogue - "Mr. Arky Lochner, a well-known petty crook, sidebar six-for-fiver shylock, registered coward, and owner of a yellow streak so vivid it could be slathered on a hot dog." - Wayne Robson does a great job of portraying this little creep, and the sets and the costumes make it perfect.

    An episode that compares favourably against any of the best of the first season's output and again demonstrative of what was possible when you throw a little bit of money into the mix - a most memorable journey into the Twilight Zone.
