Finally, a funny episode that works.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Harry is a nice guy. He's a simpleton. One day when in a hotel room he dies of a heart attack. Where is he going, Heaven or Hell? An angel and a Devil pose as his best friend and his crush and the first one to get him out the door wins and gets his soul. It's a surprisingly nice episode, and the ending made me happy because of what a great character Harry truly was. Many don't like this episode, but I feel it's a perfect mixture of comedy and romance. David Groh makes a guest appearance as Aldo. Can be found on Tales from the Darkside volume 6!!!!

My rating: Great. 20 mins. TV PG
