I wasn't blown away like others.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With Abe Vigoda.

I wasn't as blown away by this episode as others were. It was a reasonable plot, but very little interesting substance to carry it through the middle. It's about an aging mobster (Vigoda) who knowing he will die seeks help. He finds a doctor that can keep his brain alive forever. It has a nice twist ending, but that really doesn't make up for the lackluster script. The positives are Abe Vigoda. He's always good and this is no exception. This can be found on Tales from the Darkside volume 2.

My rating: OK episode. 18 mins. TV PG V
