  • New Yorkers Bob and Millie are on their way home from a party when they suddenly awaken to find themselves in bed in a house they have never seen before in an apparently deserted town. As they search the town, they make a number of surprising discoveries

    This episode isn't perfect, it becomes obvious fairly early where Bob and Millie are (The little girl's laughter is a tip-off) and the diloauge could have been better. But these flaws are overcome by the good performances and the climax of the episode. That is certainly one very interesting way to reveal to the viewers what is happening. When the little girl's large hand reaches down and picks up Bob and Millie, it has just the right amount of surprise and fear to make the scene work very well. The explanation as to how they got there works well also.
