    Clever a con man who thinks he can con his way though life. Just coo concidential that self rightoius crazy father shoots him at the end because he has the "wrong Face" {How did he find Arch Hammer{?}. Also when Hammer dies with his real face-no regret from the crazy father THAT HE SHOT THE WRONG MAN!
  • One of the Weaker Stories

    The man doesn't just change his face, he changes into an entirely different person at will. It sounds strange to say a TZ episode is too far-fetched, but this one is. The plot is not fully developed, and the weak ending is where this episode really falls short. It's lightweight viewing, but still reasonably entertaining.
  • Arch Hammer has thre ability to change his face. A clever talent, until he gets caught.

    The episode storyline sounds promising, a man with has the ability to cahnge his face. Imagine all of the cool things that he can do.

    What he ends up doing is taking the guise of people who are dead. He uses his powers to get close the friends of the people who are dead.

    For example, he takes the guise of a dead gang member. He goes back to the boss to collect money that he knew the boss owed to the the dead gang member.

    So, obviously, Arch is clever and does his research. However, the episode is filled with a lot of meaningless converstaion. The episode gets boring really fast.

    In the end, he dies in clever twist. He is caught with the wrong face at the wrong time. I guess it ended good, but I think that if Arch was as clever as he was made out to be, he would have thought of a way to escape.
