  • The episode focuses on Oliver Crangle, a right wing fanatic who is obsessed with reporting people as evil.

    This is a really funny episode. This is maybe Serling's own punch on right wing paranoia and McCarthyism. A fanatic
    and his parrot is obssessed with compiling people as evil.

    Nothing wrong with that but as the FBI agent investigates his claim there really isn't any proof of it not even a parking ticket or a hate claim (like some right wing claiming that all Mexicans go illegally through the border).

    However, that was the focus of the episode fanaticism it's executed really well , and the episode is quite well done especially the twist at the end with person becoming a little midget.
