Super-steaks!
13 June 2007 | by (Valencia, Spain) – See all my reviews

I was never a big fan of Tales from the Crypt. The humor was hit or miss, and sometimes I thought of the show as Tales from the Crapper. I happened to be surfing the TV when I came across the familiar face of the late Christopher Reeve. Sadly, his life and career ended much too soon.

In this episode, Reeve plays a variation of Clark Kent, the restaurant owner. Clark's fancy gourmet seafood isn't making any waves with the local meat and potatoes crowd. Clark is broke and the restaurant is about to be closed down when his new hire, a homeless guy played by Judd Nelson; decides to put some sizzle on the menu! One thing leads to another, and like most wacky schemes, the stuff eventually hits the fan. Of course, in a tale like this, there are bound to be some surprises. The twist ending is a good example of one episode where the humor hit the mark for me.
