I wouldn't say this episode was particularly strong or memorable, but both stories had good writing with some decent performances as well. Some of the faces include Larry Linville, Carol Lynley(her evil role is a welcome change), Joan Collins, Ron Ely, Michael Ansara, and Julie Sommars. Since I wasn't crazy about either story, I won't give too much detail, but I'll mention a few things that were interesting, even though there wasn't too much to mention. Fred Webster(Linville)wishes to obtain telekinesis(say what?)to impress Laura(Sommars), who loves him anyway; if that's the best he can come up with for a fantasy, then he must be a total bore. A few moments that bordered on the sublime had Webster's eyes turning a silly green when he moved things, especially the painful scene with the pool table; the same scene also starred Lynley, whom I normally can't stand, but her character was evil, and she plans to use Fred's "gift" for her own benefit. The other story has Lucy Atwell(Collins)wanting to be Cleopatra, and even though it's not a favorite of mine, it was still a decent segment with solid writing.
