One of the best episodes of "The Ray Bradbury Theater" - perhaps even THE best. It's not without flaws: the "train miniature" is a little too obvious, and the casting of the same actor, without the use of any aging effects, to play the same person after 10 years while a young boy turns, very logically, into a young man throws you a little off. But it tells a gripping story, and it has the kind of sublimely ironic payoff that I am looking for in this type of anthology show, and that too many episodes of this particular anthology show miss. If I could sum it up in one sentence, I would say "Live by the discipline, die by the discipline". *** out of 4.
