One of the worst episodes of the series.
8 February 2008 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With Fritz Weaver.

Fritz Weaver from the classic horror film Creepshow portrays an unhappily married man in this pathetic episode. As I've said for other episodes, this one just seems like it would've been better as an Amazing Stories episode, and it still wouldn't have been a very good one. Fritz Weaver meets a girl on Haley's comet and falls in love with her. Unfortunately her arranged to be married comes on a later comet. Not very good at all. This tries to be humorous, but instead it's annoying, and I suggest you don't show this to a first time viewer. Found on VHS volume 5. My rating: Horrid. 20 mins. TV G
