After drinking too much at a party, Bob and Millie Frazer awaken in a strange bed, in a strange house in a strange town. They're still dressed in the clothes they wore to the party but their memories are fuzzy. Bob was too drunk to drive so Millie was behind the wheel and she vaguely remembers a shadow falling over them. They soon realize that everything in the town is fake. The telephone in the house isn't wired; the drawers and cupboards in the kitchen are only a facade; even the trees are fake. The town is deserted and Millie begins to wonder if they're dead. They keep hearing a child laughing and begin a search. They're not prepared for what they encounter. Written by

The church's services, according to the sign, are at 8, 10, and 12 AM, obviously meant to be PM for the last. See more »
The moral of what you've just seen is clear. If you drink, don't drive. And if your wife has had a couple, she shouldn't drive either. You might both just wake up with a whale of a headache in a deserted village in the Twilight Zone.

Count the Number of Times This Same Plot Has Been Done
I suppose the story works. We are brought into a world where to people, a couple of drunks, find themselves in a village where everything is made of cardboard and plastic. There are no living people (have you heard this before?). The do what they can to sort out the mystery. They use their own experiences to test the situation. The problem is the world they are in should have held some clues for them. Also, they are rather unlikable people with issues of selfishness and all that goes with it. Episodes like this are probably why the series was on its last legs. Maybe they needed to bring in some new writers or something. There must have been some more imaginative plots that could have been done.
