James L. 'Fats' Brown: Dead? Not really. As long as people talk about you, you don't really die. As long as people speak your name, you continue. The legend doesn't die because the man does.
Jesse Cardiff: This is impossible.
James L. 'Fats' Brown: Nothing's impossible. Just some things are less likely than others, that's all.

This "TZ" episode from 1989 named "A Game of Pool" was a remake from the classic series. It stars Esai Morales as a young up and coming pool hustler who thanks he's the all- time greatest around. It's his obsession as this is all he does is he plays games of pool he has no life of love, he doesn't even see any movies or read any books it's a green table of hitting round balls with a stick that controls his life. Thru the magic and power and another dimension of "The Twilight Zone" the all-time legend and great pool shark the one and only Fats Brown enters to play a game with him! And it's clear and quick that this young gun learns it takes a life of playing to be the best even if it means dying to try to do so! Overall pretty good episode.
