  • Forbidden love affair between young couple is finaly consumed in another world.

    6.0
    "Song of the younger world" and its following episode"The Girl I married" are two stories pretty much about love. The usual love story in which one of the parents or both are against it. Once again, i am not a fan of love stories in the twilight zone so i didn't enjoy this very much. The only character i think delivers a strong and solid performance is the evil father, Mordecai, who managed to make me feel like ounching him in the face. To me that means he was acting great, because any performance that can arise such emotions in you, has to be very good. Once again no aliens or time travel, thats why i give this episode such a low grade.moreless
