This installment has one story on the sinister side, and the other one is more of the fluffy variety, which revolves around a couple looking for that lost magic they once had. Regarding my favorite of the two stories, named "Reunion", four old friends get together after ten years to relive better times of their lives; look for a familiar face in Michelle Lee(Carol). They get set up in a cool beach house that has an eerie atmosphere, especially at night, as they begin to get stalked by an unknown person in fairly effective scenes that had a few scares, which included an explosion in the shed and a window breaking. I won't spoil the ending or who the masked stalker was, but it has to do with a tragedy that occurred while all the girls were in college. The other story bordered on the routine, although it was carried out well and had some decent acting, including Ronny Cox(Tom), and even the rare appearance by Jim Backus of Gilligan's Island fame, who didn't do much acting after this show. Nothing too dramatic happens here, but look for performances by Lucie Arnaz and Robert Alda also. To conclude, and depending on your taste, I would recommend both stories, but I lean towards the creepier segment, as the late 1970's had some of the scarier shows on television, not just including Fantasy Island. There aren't as many recognizable faces in this episode as compared to several others, but I still enjoyed watching it.
