Wow...I didn't expect this.
22 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

So what didn't I expect? I didn't expect a good episode! This is because when "Amazing Stories" began, the series really struggled due to some terribly written shows. There were, fortunately, some nice shows to follow...but not many and the show somehow lasted two seasons despite such poor writing.

In this episode, Gregory Hines plays a stage psychic. However, he has an odd talent...he actually IS psychic! One night, during the course of the show, he walks around the audience blindfolded and tells the folks lots of details of their lives. This 'trick' is no trick and when he gets to one person, he freaks out and removes the mask--but not quickly enough to see who the person was. Why was he freaked out? Well, the man he was reading is a serial killer...and Hines' character now KNOWS that he's just murdered. What follows is very tense but not perfect. Knowing who the killer is turns out to be obvious but in spite of it, the show STILL is well done and worth seeing! Too bad more of the shows weren't this good.
