One of my top five favorites
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is number three in my top five list. It is suspenseful. This episode is about the neighborhood milkman who is rumored to grant you whatever you like. You leave him a note with the bottles. You never get to see the milkman during the episode. The next day you will get your wish. A childless family tests the waters by asking for simple things. I assume they do not want to seem too greedy. Eventually as time goes by they write a note asking their benefactor of wishes come true for a baby. As in the past their wish was granted. This episode is a perfect example of be careful what you wish for. If you get a chance see it. The Sci-Fi channel has been showing Tales from the Darkside so you might be able to catch on there in the near future.
