Grandma's shining moment of youth. Turnabout is fair as the rest of the family ages!
8 April 2009 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode titled "Grandma's Last Wish" certainly isn't a typical one of horror, as it's more humor themed with a cute and real fantasy type ending! It's really good how the episode twist. It's plot centers around an aging grandmother who lives with her son and his wife and daughter. This old lady only has the will to live when she hears old classical music and thinks about her days as a ex ballet dancer. The rest of the family wants to put her away in a nursing home to stay with her old age. She doesn't want to go so she wishes up a plan. One by one strange and unusual accidents start to happen to the other family members and you may find this episode a little predictable. However in the end grandma has the last joy of laugh as it's neat and cute as to how the other family members age strangely all of a sudden! Wish was granted! Overall good episode that twist in a very comical and neat way showing an old lady has her shining moment.
