Don't worry be happy live with the dead!
21 December 2012 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Just watched this classic episode segment from "Night Gallery" and it featured the old and now late legendary character actor E.G. Marshall(most remembered for "Creepshow" and "Christmas Vacation"). Anyway in it E.G. plays an owner of an ancient and Gothic style funeral home who he as the old wise owner takes pride in every body he gets. Only oddly the episode takes a twist when an on the run criminal takes hideout at the funeral home. And this criminal soon discovers a secret at this old funeral home as downstairs it's an upright gathering of the dead and soon he will be a member! This episode teaches to love and cherish the dead as they are less annoying than the living as they don't care about competition, greed, material things and they cause less stress than the living! Overall good clever and offbeat episode and remembered for E.G. Marshall's work.
