  • One of my all time favorite episodes of The Twilight Zone!

    A street vendor has a knack for telling people exactly what they need to purchase from him. Although the items may seem silly at the time, the customer always ends up needing that exact item. A shady character in the bar begins to pick up on the old vendor's gift, and threatens him to tell him what he needs. The vendor does what he is asked, however it isn't enough for the man. He comes back to the vendor for more, and the vendor will not comply. Then the vendor decides to give the man shoes. An awesome ending awaits that I do not want to give away.. Just an all around great episode.
