Storyline

David Logan lives at home with his mother and he's still upset that his father left them many years before. He is haunted by an event when he was twelve years old and he came home to find his father with a blue-eyed blond. He tells his mother he has an appointment at 11:00 so he skips dinner and heads to a bar. There he meets a girl and repeats several times that something big is going to happen at 11:00. He gets into a fight with a sailor in the bar and tells him the same and then again with a patron in an Irish pub, now saying someone is going to die at the prescribed hour. When the 11 o'clock news come on the air, you learn the full story. Written by garykmcd

Bomb
11 November 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Now, I'm as big a fan of the series as anyone, but I've got to admit that this entry is a bomb. It's as bad as any I've seen. The best part is the first five minutes where we try to figure out what David's (Kimbrough) problem is. From that point on, dreary one-note is piled on dreary one-note. Kimbrough agonizes at a fever pitch that never lets up and is darn near agonizing to watch. In short, the performance is third-rate James Dean. Also, the screenplay fails to develop the 11 PM appointment gimmick in either interesting or suspenseful fashion. Nor does the plot build from one segment to the next. The three segments (Crane-Gulager-McClory) simply stretch out to fill the 30- minutes. And when the payoff (if you want to call it that) comes, it's hardly surprising. How this mess managed to pass the usually eagle-eyed production crew is perhaps the biggest mystery of all, proving I guess that even the best has its flops.
