OK episode that's a talking voice that tells everyone's problems and hidden secrets!
8 June 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode is in my opinion a pretty good one that tells the story of a couple as it's set in the early 20th century in a time before TV was born. And the radio was the only means of communication and entertainment. And this couple seems to have it all as they seem content and happy and suddenly this radio takes on a voice of it's own as it starts to tell about personal problems and it reveals secrets about people that the couple knows. And they feel this in a way is a neat tool because it can reveal secrets only in the end it starts to turn tables and reveal secrets and problems about each one of them and that leads to cause problems between them now it's marriage headaches! Overall nothing great a pretty good episode.
