Riley
27 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best episode on the "Gallery" offering on DVD. I believe award winning also. Would make a marvelous 80 minute film with the right cast. I would dare say an older Brad Pitt in the lead. Robert Montgomery for my money, although deceased :(. I think previous mentioned "nostalgic" and that is the key plot line. Perhaps if I may say "black nostalgia" in this case. Something grown-ups can all relate to in days gone by that shall never return. For some of us, we may think of our family when younger or friends, and desperately miss those "old days" when times seemed more innocent in an acutely different culture. I think Rod Serling made this very personal for him which gave it's production a golden touch, if you will. I believe he saved it as the show's last episode that first season as to perhaps leave a lasting impression. Well Mr. Serling, over 35 years later, it still does!
