  • Probably the best episode of the Twilight Zone- ever.

    I've always wondered how come I still love this episode, even though I'm a 13-year old boy, and there are many episodes that should appeal to me more. I think it's the basic idea behind it. An old man is told that he's going to die, he gets a reprieve, but the little girl will die instead, and the old man uses his reprieve to save her. This is definitely Death's best appearance. Instead of resorting to trickery (as in Nothing in the Dark), or being way too creepy (The Hitch-Hiker), Death is a clan-cut, no-nonsense business man who has appointments that cannot be missed. This Death has personality, and we can sense that he is fond of the people he takes. There is no bad part to this episode. It's also Dana Dillaway's finest performance in the Twilight Zone.
