This is another one of those typical episodes that has one fluffy, and one darker segment, with the latter being more of my personal preference. There's tons, although probably too many, familiar faces that include Dennis Cole, Erin Gray, Dack Rambo, Mary Ann Mobley, Bradford Dillman, Charlene Tilton, Allen Luden, and Peggy Fleming, who wasn't too bad trying her hand at acting. There's a third story named "The Last Great Race" that was edited if you're watching on cable these days. As is usually the case, I won't get into much detail, but I'll mention some interesting things that stood out to me. An odd shot that stuck with me is when Charlotte(Tilton)is gliding with her magic skates, she sticks her tongue out while smiling; it was probably a missed edit, because it did look silly. It's also very obvious that a double is doing the actual skating, but other than a weird appearance by Ludden, nothing too memorable happens here. The better story has Jeremy(Cole), looking to see how his famous pianist brother died, but he's warned that he will become his dead brother and seek revenge. There's a few corny special effects, but when Jeremy becomes his brother, it makes for a few interesting scenes.
