This was one of two episodes from season one of THE TWILIGHT ZONE that is highly entertaining yet would make most theologians heads collectively explode since the ZONEs view of the afterlife is definitely NOT inspired by Christianity, Judaism or Islam. But, in spite of this, it's also a very entertaining episode and is a must-see for fans of the series.
The show starts with a small-time hood running from the police. As the police fire, the man jumps over a wall--only to find a very creepy Sebastian Cabot waiting there for him. Creepy, I say, because his hair and beard are white as well as his clothing. The crook soon realizes he did NOT survive the gun fire and this must be Heaven. Cabot ("Pip") shows him about and the place seems better than the crook could imagine--beautiful girls, money, gambling and booze--everything he could possibly want. So what is the bizarre twist that you find at the end of most every episode? See it for yourself--it's quite an entertaining and memorable show!
