Make a deal with the devil then when he takes your soul, he goes after a another soul this one a beauty!
29 November 2014 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Just watched this "TFTD" episode from the last season of 1988 called "The Deal" and it was indeed one! Bradley Whitford is Tom Dash a lonely and out on his own struggling want to be screenwriter who lives in a crap like apartment, yet it's tough to know the right people in Hollywood to get you going. So Tom's luck changes one day or does it when a messenger shows up at the door to deliver good news only it's a deal with the prince of darkness himself. This strange character has promised him a lead good Hollywood read for a feature film is this to good to be true? Only slowly but soon Tom sees the darkness and the game it's real even with those strange horns, soon after Tom's soul is taken this dark master moves on to another this time it's an up and coming beauty! It's one deal one soul taking at a time, wow neat and clever episode that teaches and proves a good moral message and that's be careful of the devil.
