It's an Amazing Story
21 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is mostly a real cliffhanger. There is a certain mystique when a story takes place on board a plane, particularly when some sort of malfunction occurs. This episode is really about a man of great talent who has the power to turn his drawings into reality: draw it and it will come true. The real suspense is like that of any story taking place high above the ground. The tail gunner is stuck in the bowels of the plane and the landing gear is inoperative. If the plane does a belly landing, he will be crushed. Every avenue is explored but to no avail. Though it never quite makes it and the conclusion is a bit too much, we try to guess all along the way. Good cast. Just kind of a silly premise.
