Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: A word to the wise now to any and all who might suddenly feel the presence of a cigar-smoking helpmate who takes bankbooks out of thin air. If you're suddenly aware of any such celestial aids, it means that you're under the beneficent care of one Harmon Cavender, guardian angel. And this message from the Twilight Zone: lotsa luck!

Candidate for worst ever TZ episode?
10 December 2007 | by (Bolton, England) – See all my reviews

It's interesting how often respectable drama TV writers come unstuck when it comes to writing out and out comedy. The likes of Nigel Kneale and J Michael Straczynski have demonstrated that it is a lot harder than it looks. So it is that Rod Serling's 'funny' episodes of "The Twilight Zone" are amongst his worst work.

"Cavender is Coming" is probably the weakest of the lot. No wonder it was not picked up for a series. It is a lumpen entry in the magical friend sub-genre, of which "Bewitched" and "I Dream of Jeanie" are the best known examples. Only Carol Burnett's endearing qualities make these twenty-two minutes bearable. The laugh-track is certainly annoying but even removing it doesn't improve matters much.
