  • After being fired from his job, Patrick McNulty goes to a local bar where he drives all the customers away except one: a drunken man named Potts. For buying him a beer, Potts gives McNulty a gift: a unique kind of stopwatch. How unique? You will see.

    This episode has a very clever premise. However it may be a victim of its own attempts at perfection. Just two minutes into this episode I was just as annoyed at McNulty as everybody in the episode was! I understand that is the whole idea, but I think this episode shows some things can be done too well for their own good. The irritating McNulty took away from my enjoyment of this episode which, like many other "Twilight Zone" episodes, will make you think twice about what you wish for. This is not a perfect episode, but one worth seeing.
