Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: We are all travelers. The trip starts in a place called birth - and ends in that lonely town called death. And that's the end of the journey, unless you happen to exist a few hours, like Bunny Blake, in the misty regions of the Twilight Zone.

Just gets better over time
8 November 2012 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

I've seen this episode many times, and while I always remember it being top-notch, I can never seem to recall why I like it so much. In watching it again today, I was in a receptive enough mood to realize why. The acting is excellent; the script is compact and concise. It's a classic Earl Hamner episode - sentimental and mysterious, with a core of Americana. (Much as I idolize Rod Serling, I've come to realize his writing has some annoying characteristics -- the everpresent "I...I think..."/"What do you think, Edith?" kind of thing -- while other regular writers, among them Hamner, Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson, in particular, were much better WRITERS per se.) I personally disagree that the main character is annoying: she's supposed to be driven and self-centered, at the same time that she can appreciate her roots. That makes her sacrifice so much more appealing -- even if it could only happen in... the Twilight Zone.
