From aboard the IMDboat at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Smith talks to the cast of "Teen Wolf" about the solemn yet celebratory panel for the upcoming season. This news and more in our Guide to Comic-Con.
Roger Shackleforth is madly in love with a beautiful young woman, Leila, who wants nothing to do with him. Monopolizing the pay phone in a diner, someone waiting to make a call refers him to Professor A. Daemon, a seller of books and various potions. When Roger learns that he can buy a love potion for $1, he jumps at the opportunity. The Professor tries to subtly warn him off but he happily buys the potion anyways.

I'm in love with somebody named Leila, but she's not in love with me, and... I don't know why I'm telling you this.
Professor A. Daemon:
I do. I can arrange it so she'll love you.
Professor A. Daemon:
I promise you she'll never leave your side. When she isn't telling you she loves you, she'll be gazing at you lovingly.

"The Chaser" is one of those comedic episodes of "The Twilight Zone" and on this level it works well, though it is far from one of the better episodes of the series. In fact, I'd place this in the middle as far as quality goes.
A young loser (George Grizzard) is infatuated with a selfish but pretty lady (Patricia Barry). I call him a loser because the lady has practically nothing to offer anyone other than her looks, but still this nerdy guy thinks he has a chance to capture her heart...if he had a love potion. So, he goes to a place that looks like a library where he meets a guy who makes potions that are guaranteed to work. However, the man tries to get Grizzard to consider some other potion--it's not like he didn't warn him! And, because it's the Twilight Zone, you know that somehow this potion will backfire--which is exactly what it does.
The episode is cute and clever but not one that deserves all the 10s it has received. Very good...not perfect.
