Quotes

The Devil: Here's the back story, Sam. You don't mind if I call you Sam, do you? I mean, I think we're really connecting here in a positive way. And I'd like to cut through all that "victim-demon" negative imaging, you know what I mean?
The Devil: [takes off his mirrored sunglasses, revealing mirrored eyes] Okay, here's the deal. All that mathematical lingo you were spouting? It's beautiful, man, it's like poetry. Brought tears to my eyes. Just happened to have the right phonetic structure to be a good old-fashioned ...

Her Pilgrim Soul is a pretty good romance
3 April 2008 | by (philippines) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen Her Pilgrim Soul in years, I don't know how it will hold up. However, I do remember it was a wonderful story, very romantic, and surprisingly enough, it was directed by Wes Craven! Interesting choice for his oeuvre. I don't go much for romantic stories. Maybe it's the science fiction element that got to me. Anyway, it's this one and the "A Message for Charity" episode that I fondly remember. Maybe it had to do with hormones (it's my teenage years). Overall, the series doesn't seem to surpass the original Rod Serling black and white episodes. Series consultant here is Harlan Ellison and I wonder if that's the reason (I mean, I originally watched these episodes BECAUSE I saw his name. I hope the drop in quality isn't because of him).
