5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gary Busey plays Reverand Nolan Powers, a preacher who preaches mainly from his radio show on WGOD. Nolan has a bit of a secret revolving his runaway younger brother whom his mother always loved more then him. Movies and TV shows featuring a less than holy religious feature are pretty much a dime a dozen. However, that being said, this episode is pretty well acted especially by Busey who really seems to dig in to the role. Making it one of the better episodes. The ending is suitably spooky. This is one of the episodes that can be found on disc 2 of Volume 1 of the US release.

My Grade: B-
