Weird, different, and very strange episode of the series.
15 March 2010 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode from season 2 titled "Ring Around the Redhead" is clearly a very strange and odd entry really a fantasy themed episode, because you really couldn't describe it as horror or something scary. It centers around a convicted felon Billy Malone(John Heard who would be a future "Sopranos" guest star) who's scheduled to die in the electric chair. Before it he gives an interview to a TV news reporter who finds out not only how and why he got there, but the odd occurrence that happened to him also. She finds out that Billy had an unusual ring hole appear which spit out an attractive redheaded woman! In the end a crazy and strange thing happens when the state throws the switch the redhead reappears to Billy! Overall it's an okay episode just strange and so oddly done with an unbelievable ending.
