A different episode that doesn't really fit the series.
2 August 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

For some reason this episode was so fantasy and light, non-violent that it seemed more like a light Twilight Zone episode or an episode of Amazing Stories. The plot of this one was there's a boy and girl twin. The boy dies, the girl finds that he saved his soul onto a computer. But dad doesn't believe it so he sells the computer, pulls the plug and does all kinds of obnoxious things to his deceased son. This episode was amusing, but it wasn't really what the series was about. I'd put this into the fantasy section of the series. Can be found on volume 3 on VHS

My rating: OK episode. 23 mins. TV PG
