James B.W. Bevis is, by almost any definition, eccentric. He drives a car that once was Henry Ford's dream, he likes zither music and makes model ships. He's a bookkeeper by profession and his desk at work is always cluttered. He likes to bring in children at Christmas-time to sing carols. It all leads to him being fired. While drowning his sorrows at a nearby bar, he meets none other than his guardian angel who shows him that life can be considerably different for him if he wishes it....but is he prepared to make the changes necessary to obtain that lifestyle?

While Mr. Hempstead is trying to impress Mr. Bevis, one of the things he mentions is that he helped Ben-Hur win his famous chariot race. This would have been impossible since Ben-Hur is a fictional character (created by General Lew Wallace in the mid 1800s) and not an actual person from history. See more »

This is about the most lighthearted TZ episode that you'll ever see. While Mr. Bevis is a likable character that sticks to his beliefs and lifestyle even when greener pastures arise, the episode itself is not exactly spectacular. It is definitely one of the low-lights of Season 1. Nothing extraordinary regarding the plot, acting, or cinematography really occurs. It almost seems like Sterling wrote this episode just so he could try a few quirky special effects.
