A Magnetic Personality
20 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The premise is so ludicrous. Let's face it. The story is designed so an obnoxious kid gets "his." He has mistreated others, he is filled with arrogance, and has no respect for the people around him. Of course, those people dote on him as well, so they are not to be admired. The plot is formulaic and predictable, but that's the curse of shows like this. We are set up to believe something will happen. As with the previous "train" episode, for a half hour anthology series, the special effects are quite astounding and we end up satisfied. It must be that Stephen Spielberg had a lot of influence on the pocketbooks of the production staff.
