A drag and one of the more duller episodes because it had no horror or suspense elements.
30 March 2009 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode titled "The Tear Collector" is one that you will not find very good. To me the episode is a drag it's not like many others in the series as it has no horror or suspense elements as if you watch the series you know most episodes take a wicked twist. Anyway it centers around a young woman named Prudence who's always sad she cries all the time. Then one day she bumps into a man who's strange and has a hobby collecting tears! In the end it turns out both are happy as each have benefited. Overall not one of the better episodes skip it. Because as was so common in the series most episodes ended with a horror twist, this one didn't.
