the miracle is that i could sit through the whole episode
1 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A scam-artist preacher known as Brother Charles (Joe Pantoliano of future Sopranos fame) is sitting pretty with his ill-earned money via his 'Church of Unlimite Love' when it all comes to a halt after he sets his sight on the mysterious Alice Ames, a girl who suffers from the Stigmata. This is one of the episodes that can be found on Volume 1 of the US release of the Hitchhiker, and by choosing the episodes by star power as opposed to the actual best episodes of the series, it really doesn't do it justice. This is proved once again in this episode which is mediocre at best and has an abrupt ending that is completely unfuffiling and made me not like the episode even more.

My Grade: D-
