  • This is a twilight zone that deals with the loss of identity. What could be worse?

    8.0
    How would any of us react to waking up one day and finding that our identity had been erased? This is a very disturbing question that is probed in this episode. The main character deals with this issue very well. Put yourself in his place what would you do if everyone that you thought you knew suddenly did not recognize you?This raises some very deep psychological questions. The very nature of self identity is put to the test here. Is our concept of ourselves what we know or what others perceive us to be? All in all this is a very good episode.moreless

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Cameo of a man who has just lost his most valuable possession. He doesn't know about the loss yet. In fact, he doesn't even know about the possession. Because, like most people, David Gurney has never really thought through the matter of his identity. But, he's going to be thinking about it a great deal from now on, because that is what he's lost. And his search for it is going to take him into the darkest corners of the Twilight Zone.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: A case of mistaken identity or a nightmare turned inside out? A simple loss of memory of the end of the world? David Gurney may never find the answer, but you can be sure he's looking for it... in the Twilight Zone.
