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 garykmcd

[closing narration]
Narrator: 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.

I dissent: I like it!
6 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm really rather surprised by all the negative reviews of this episode. I think it's quite a strong one. Not a masterpiece, to be sure, but quite solid. I don't think the ending was obvious at all (at least, if one tries to forget that one has seen the episode many times). I always like episodes that provide a good snapper ending, and this one delivers. And the whole thing is creepy and disconcerting. Especially as one ponders the fate of the protagonists as we leave them at the end of the episode. OK, so it's not a profound or deep episode. But it's interesting, creepy, surprising, and fun. I can think of plenty of episodes that are far weaker.
