Storyline

Rosswell G. Flemington owns a model ship company and loves everything nautical. That's not his problem however: he likes everything to be loud. He speaks at the top of his lungs, bellowing commands to his staff. He plays his phonograph records - his favorites include the sound of jets flying off the deck of the USS Hornet - as loud as possible, something that leads his wife to leave him. He's not prepared for what happens to him in the Twilight Zone however. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[opening narration]
Narrator: This is Roswell G. Flemington, two hundred and seventeen pounds of gristle, lung tissue and sound decibels. He is, as you have perceived, a noisy man, one of a breed who substitutes volume for substance, sound for significance, and shouting to cover up the readily apparent phenomenon that he is nothing more than an overweight and aging perennial Sea Scout whose noise-making is in inverse ratio to his competence and his character. But soon our would-be admiral of the fleet ...

John McGiver yells and yells...
10 September 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

John McGiver (who looks for all the world like Mr. Weatherby from the Archie comics) plays a loud and bombastic jerk who loves to yell and bother everyone, as he's a self-important guy. Eventually, though, his yelling is punished in a very expected way--no big surprises here, folks.

This is one of the less than wonderful episodes from THE TWILIGHT ZONE television series. Despite some opinions to the contrary, the quality of the episodes of this series varied tremendously--with some classics, some clunkers and a few that are just time-passers. I'd put this one in the category of a time-passer. While it's harmless enough, just watching John McGiver yell and yell and then finally get his comeuppance just isn't enough to justify an entire episode. It's inoffensive but pretty weak all around.
