Quotes

Narrator: [opening narration] Portrait of a man at work, the only work he's ever done, the only work he knows. His name is Henry Francis Valentine, but he calls himself "Rocky", because that's the way his life has been - rocky and perilous and uphill at a dead run all the way.

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.
