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
Big fan of this series, but this entry was beyond weak. No suspense, no mystery -- so to compensate, they add in heaping tablespoons of the worst overacting you could possibly imagine. This is almost unwatchable, and if you've had the pleasure of viewing it, you will see what I mean.
Probably the most unrealistic episode of the series... a train wreck of a performance by the lead actor.
The story picks up vignettes in the life of a emotional 17 year old. You begin to imagine that these vignettes have a point -- that there is some sort of irony or Hitchcockian twist on the way. But no. This was based on a short story that I now must find and read, because I cannot believe that what I just saw on screen is what the author intended. Least I hope not.
