Storyline

In the early 1890s Mr. Garrity arrives in Happiness, Arizona apparently knowing a great deal about some of the people who live there. He knows that Jensen the bartender's brother died and that Gooberman the town drunk lost his wife. Garrity also reveals that he has a very peculiar gift - he can bring back the dead. When a dog is run down by a wagon in the street he resurrects it without any difficulty. When he offers to do the same for the town's loved one's, they realize they would rather he not bring back the dearly departed, something they are quite happy to pay him for. Garrity, a charlatan if ever there was one, is glad to accept their money - though he does seem to leave something behind. Written by garykmcd

Be careful what you ask for--you might just get it!!
29 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

A man arrives at a small town and offers to resurrect the dead. At first, the townspeople are dubious, but when it seems like he might just be able to do it, the people are excited...until they begin to fully appreciate the impact of this miracle. Ultimately, the twist you'd expect from The Twilight Zone is indeed present and it ends in a very satisfying manner.

This is an excellent episode and I liked how what initially seemed like a straight drama actually had a subtle comedic twist. While it had a ton to say about human nature, it said it in a truly ironic and clever fashion that made me smile. Not the very best the series had to offer, but a definite notch above the norm.
