A worthy remake
3 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this first revival of the Twilight Zone since Rod Serling's original series there were a few episodes that were redone from the first series. Not one came up to its predecessor in any non-technical respect in my opinion and should have been omitted in favor of fresh material. This one is different in that it has a reason to be. The original show had a different ending than the script the author (George Clayton Johnson) had written. This production delivers the original script with the original ending. It would be hard to match let alone surpass the strong performances of Jack Klugman and Jonathan Winters in the original but this episode does succeed in presenting the story as the author wrote it.
