Deceptive Conclusion
28 March 2009 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The lonely John Griffths (Saul Rubinek) meets Alicia Hart (Kate Lynch) in a masquerade party and they immediately fall in love for each other. They are always laughing together and his life is like a dream. One day, John asks Alicia if their relationship could last since everything ends and she proposes him to play a game that she calls Gotcha! In a very low-budget hotel.

Like many other intriguing and promising episodes of "The Ray Bradbury Theater", the conclusion of "Gotcha!" is a great deception and without explanations. Maybe it makes sense for the readers of Ray Bradbury, but the episode unfortunately has a terrible conclusion. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil: "Gotcha!"
