Unique Little Episode
31 August 2011 | by (Iowa, United States) – See all my reviews

Judy, You're Not Yourself Today may stand as one of the most provocative, unique offerings from the crypt. It's eccentric style and over the top performances make for a highly unusual experience. Is it good? Well, that's up for debate.

A kooky, pretentious couple find their relationship tested by a body-switching witch. One can't blame the actors as they're all immensely watchable and take the show to maniacal levels. There are actually a few laughs to be had here, folks.

But it's just quite uneven, jarringly so. It feels like one of the more obscure Tales from the Darkside episodes...and thats not a compliment. It's still better than most of today's television, at least.
