Not Much of an Imagination
2 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If the principle character had been a cat, he would have been very happy. In this episode, a small time hoodlum gets shot. When he awakens he is in the presence of Sebastian Cabot, who appears to be on his side. The man is given whatever he wants. He chooses the most base, crass, set of circumstances. Those things that mattered to him during his miserable life. There is a scene where he actually tries to shoot his benefactor. I guess we all imagine what our own hells would be like. We might think a little more. For him, boredom comes easily because he has few options. It has an interesting conclusion and the guy gets what's coming from him.
