This episode has never been rerun in the United States due to complaints from Japanese-Americans. They felt that it was offensive that George Takei's character was a Japanese-American whose father helped plan the attack on Pearl Harbor. There is no evidence of any Japanese immigrant committing treason against the U.S. during World War II. This episode is rerun in other countries and is available on DVD in the U.S. See more »

Can you believe I used to be able to squeeze into this?
Yeah, sure. Why not?
You're just being polite. No, I'm a rancid tub of lard now.

The previous commenter really tore this episode apart. It is not the best, or my favorite of Twilight Zone episodes, but it is worth the look for the true Twilight Zone fan. This episode is available through Image Entertainment in either the Complete Definitive Collection or The Season 5 Definitive Collection. I am not trying to spam, however I will put the disclaimer that I do work for Image. I have seen many comments that certain episodes are "rare" or "hard to find." I just want to say that this isn't true. We have all the episodes in their entirety. I am not in sales and do not profit. I love Twilight Zone - even the hokey episodes.
