Storyline

A woman proposes to rob New York's Metropolitan Museum, using a wristwatch which accelerates time for the wearer, so their movements go undetected by anyone more than 5 feet away. The small-time crook she hires for the job doesn't care where the artworks are going or why the woman who identifies herself only as "The Collector," wants the masterpieces. Written by David Stevens

Goofs

At the end of the episode, Henry thinks to himself that he will never be able to speak to another person again. This is untrue, since, based on what the lady told him, he should be able to get close to another person and that person should be affected by the bracelet's power. See more »

Terrific!

A small-time hood is approached by a very odd and mysterious woman. She has brought him an amazing time device--one that stops time. Her request--that he steal many great works of art from the local art museum. All he has to do is activate the wristband and he is able to move as such an accelerated speed that no one can see him or the paintings disappear. It sounds great--and even better when instead of paying the crook for his services, she allows him to KEEP the device! But, not surprisingly, there are some twists--and this isn't quite as wonderful as he suspected originally.

In many ways, this show reminds me of many episodes of "The Twilight Zone". Mostly, it's like the one with the magic stopwatch that stops time--but it also has aspects of an episode also called "All the Time in the World". Regardless, the show is brilliant and creative--and has a wonderful ending. Well worth your time and available for free download just like many episodes of this wonderful series--just follow the link on IMDb or go to archive.org. Enjoy.

FYI--Look for a young Jack Warden in a small part. Also, if you think through the plot, you do wonder why the woman needed this man's help in the first place. After all, she, too, had the wrist device!
