Great ending!!
28 October 2006 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With: Bud Cort and Carol Kane.

For me, this is a very forgettable episode. However it is also a very good episode, which is weird. This episode deals with a Warlock that has gained access to the lottery numbers for a million dollars. When he ends up being one number off, he is really mad. He becomes even madder when he finds that the neighbor hairdresser got the right numbers. It has a surprise in the middle, but even more than that I loved the non-surprise ending. Also noted is Carol Kane's wonderful performance. Not memorable, but very fun.

My rating: Great episode. 21 mins. TV14V
