  • A clever story about the dangers of reality television

    This episode ranges from funny to disturbing, similarly to the reality television shows that it tries to imitate. Donna's son is kidnapped by a mystery person and she becomes the star of a reality television show to get him back. The sick nature of teh programme coupled with the ruthlessness of the producers serves up a perfect parabble of morals of reality television.The way some characters almost treat it as a joke is also funny and disturbing, highliting our fairly nonchalant attitudes at the cruelty of some television shows. The final twist, while perhaps not mindblowing, is a clever one and ends on a poignant note. A true classic.moreless

    • Nick Dark: Yeah we're unscripted. Yeah we're gonna make mistakes, and sometimes we're gonna get flat-out boned. But when you're in search of raw human drama, that's a chance we're willing to take.

    • Host: (opening narration) Meet Donna Sidchek. Just another person living beyond her means in uncertain times and looking for a short break from the reality of her existence. We're about to see just how far Donna is willing to go, when another kind of reality intrudes, in the Twilight Zone.

    • Host: (closing narration) There's reality and there's entertainment. There's a life you lead and the fantasies you're led to, by a small but powerful group of people known as television executives, who recently discovered the entertainment value of real life. And in the future if you think there's a risk they won't take, a line they won't cross, than we have an offer to make and some time for you to spend in The Twilight Zone.
