What a cool episode
23 July 2007 | by (Bernardsville, NJ) – See all my reviews

"Silent snow, secret snow" really ranks up there with the best episodes of this series or Serlings masterpiece "The Twilight Zone" In this story, a young boy becomes enchanted with dark and cool snow, so much so that he withdraws from the real world and inhabits a fantasy world completely detached from his parents and reality. As good as the episode is, it is completely won over by the amazing narration of the late great Orson Welles. Without seeing this, it's tough to describe why this episode is so good. I think it has to do with the feel it generates. I read somewhere that is describes a boy's descent into madness and I think that is the truly creepy aspect of this show, that a young boy could go so completely insane. Very creepy and thoughtful episode.
