[closing narration]
Narrator: In a way, it can be said that Walter Ryder succeeded in his life's ambition, even though the man he created was, after all, himself. There may be easier ways to self-improvement, but sometimes it happens that the shortest distance between to points is a crooked line - through the Twilight Zone.

Nice debut of hour-long episodes
7 April 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first episode of season 4, when TW episodes became one hour long. It explores a frequent theme for the show: a person confused by his whereabouts and trying to figure out why things aren't as he remembers. Excellent nightmare material. It's one of the few episodes that touches on how annoying and/or scary someone who is ultra-religious can be. For regular Twilight Zone viewers, it will probably feel a bit drawn out at times, as though it was originally the usual 23 minutes but extended to fill the new longer time, but for someone not a regular viewer, it's a good, creepy story with plenty of surprises and it serves as a great introduction to the show.
