    This was the first Twilight Zone episode (2002-2003) that I saw, and it got me hooked. It's about a dying man transported thansk to a car accident back to 1968, where he disovers Martin Luther King will be shot. It's a neat little story, all the actors are great, and the resolution is good too, it's just not the best episode of the run. Because we all know Martin Luther King died in 1968, we know that his death will not be prevented, and so the alternate twist isn't as interesting. This sort of plot was handled in 'Cradle of Darkness' and the twist in that was much more satisfying.

    A good, but not great, episode.moreless
