And so the series ends on a strong note
23 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The final-ever episode of the 1980s TV series THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE, FATHER & SON GAME is probably the best episode I've watched yet. That's because it eschews the dumb comedy of other episodes to deliver a thoughtful, thought-provoking tale of brain transplants, business legacies and father/son relationships in a sci-fi context.

The story sees a dead businessman having his brain transplanted into a younger body, leaving his son naturally peeved because he was waiting to take over the business. Of course, things don't go according to plan, and what transpires is relatively intelligent: well acted, with an effective script to bring out the disturbing nature of the scenario. Hardly a masterpiece, but better than those that came before...
