An interesting idea that kind of leads to nothing.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

I actually think that this is one of the most clever ideas for a Darkside episode, but it really doesn't have an ending. It just leads to nothing. This episode deals with the tortures of smoking. Mr. Bigalow has signed himself into rehab, unbeknown-st to him. He is trapped in his house, and a voice guides him on what to do. Every time he smokes he is scolded and the buzzers go off really loud. Bigalow finds a man living next door to him and decides to make deals with him through a mouse hole. The ending is kind of the beginning of his drinking problem.

My rating: Great episode. 21 mins. TV PG L
