It seems that today's TV shows or episodes focused on the telepathy theme usually involve some evil, sinister or troubling plot. But the Twilight Zones A Penny For Your Thoughts offers the viewer something much lighter.
Written by George Clayton Johnston over 46 years ago, A Penny For Your Thoughts is a clever episode that is still fun to watch today.
I laughed and sympathized with Hector Pooles situation as he comes to terms with his new telepathic ability. Pooles quirky mannerisms and facial expressions reminded me of a Jim Carey or Jack Lemmon in their early careers.
While this episode was about telepathy, I believed it went further by begging the viewer to ask himself: is it more rewarding to have your honest thoughts actually heard by others, instead of keeping them secret?
