[opening narration]
Narrator: What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare. It isn't - it's the beginning. Although Alan Talbot doesn't know it, he's about to enter a strange new world, too incredible to be real, too real to be a dream. It's called The Twilight Zone.

Great Episode, not as dark and very well done/great acting by lead
30 April 2016 | by (Jax, FL) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best TZ episodes of many good ones. The reason I especially like this one is because it changes from creepy and/or macabre, to become a heartwarming charmer about second chances, self improvement, human loneliness, and how one must be lovable to be loved... it seemed to me to show that one must force himself into being the better person he knows he can be if he wants to enjoy the fruits of happiness resulting from being that better man...but in a much different way than you'd expect. Some other reasons I liked this episode are; The director took the more difficult road that resulted in a more entertaining experience. It really shows off the acting talent of George Grizzard, more than most of his other roles, even his previous appearance on the Twilight Zone 3 years earlier. They did not take the easy way out, the lead actor- Grizzard, did a GREAT job and is at his best. A true acting talent as seen in this episode. I give this one an A+

Watch it soonest!
