This was a very good episode, especially the story Seance, which boasts an impressive performance by Eve Plumb, who plays Claire Conti, as she's enlisted the help of a medium(solid performance by Marie Windsor)to speak to her dead brother an find out how he died. Look for a few more familiar faces in Leslie Neilson(always good)and a pre-Hunter appearance by a young Stepfanie Kramer. I usually say that I prefer the sinister stories, and the seances here are done very well, and is quite eerie; an interesting note to some is that later in 1979, Windsor would star in the vampire epic Salem's Lot. I wish Nielson had more to do here, but that's about the only complaint with this slick story. The other story titled "Treasure", stars a very wooden and very mumbling George Maharis, who has a fantasy of finding a treasure and becoming wealthy. How original. Shelley Fabares, who plays his wife, easily bests him as far as acting goes, and I felt bad one moment he starts pushing her around when he forced her to change into a better wardrobe for this pretentious party. He's hard to root for, especially the way he treats his wife when he becomes rich, but he comes to his senses in the end. The winner is definitely the other story, and for fans of the darker segments, this is a treat.
