When Floyd takes off from the shack with all the instruments in it because he hears Mary Rachel's tune, the straps for the guitar and the tape recorder continuously switch positions as he runs through the woods. Sometimes the guitar strap is over the recorder strap, and other times the recorder strap is on top. See more »

One of the final nails in the "Twilight Zone" coffin...
20 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

While I really enjoyed "The Twilight Zone", I must admit that towards the end of the show's run there were an awful lot of duds--too many. It's obvious in hindsight that the show had run its course and the large number of poor shows towards the very end are evidence of this. This was the last episode of the series that they filmed--too bad it couldn't have been better, as it would have been nice to see the show end on a more positive note. Instead this and the god-awful "Bewitching Pool" helped wrap up the series.

The show stars Gary Crosby--who surprised me with his nice voice. However, the show itself was pretty hard to take. Crosby plays a sharpie--a guy who thinks he's a huge star and travels about looking for songs and ideas he can use to make a fortune. When he stumbles into a hick village and hears a woman's pretty folk song, he's transfixed. Little does he know that he is about to become THE character in this annoying song as it unfolds.

Overall, slow and not especially rewarding. I noticed one reviewer called the plot 'lackluster'--that might actually be a bit generous. I say 'dull'....
