Trivia

In "Wong's Lost and Found Emporium", David bitterly mentions the Vincent Chin case where a retrial of both the man's killers resulted in the acquittal of the one who held him down while the one who bludgeoned him to death was condemned - after the episode, the second man was released on a technicality as well.

"Dead Woman's Shoes": Does anyone else think this segment dates itself much more strongly than previous episodes of the series? Must be the hair. Anyway, Helen Mirren joins the parade of actors who appear in the Twilight Zone before making it big. And being Helen Mirren, she doesn't disappoint in the dual role of a socially awkward pushover mysteriously transformed into a wronged wife looking for revenge.

"Wong's Lost and Found Emporium": The main problem here is that the characters are boring. Wong is a jerk because the world is racist, Melinda is trapped in a joyless life, the old woman wants more time to make art, and the old man can't get any damn respect from his kids. Sure, it's all realistic enough, but the story would work a lot better if the characters' losses were the result of something more tangibly dramatic, such as murder of a close friend (Wong), sexual assault (Melinda), terminal illness (the old woman)...I can't think of anything for the old man, but you get the idea. Incidentally, Anna Maria Poon's portrayal of Melinda was very personable. I wonder why she didn't have a more fruitful career in Hollywood.
