Quotes

Blind Singer: [singing] Too many nights I've been alone, too many times I shoulda gone home / Now I hear you got someone new to hold, hearing whispered words on the telephone / But if I can't have you, damn if anybody will / Lord, I never thought I had it in me to kill / Never thought it would come to this / Always thought that we would never miss / Now I'm breakin' my heart, so sad, so alone / Because of whispered words on the telephone / But if I can't have you, damn if anybody will / Lord, I never thought ...

A good idea or two, but lame execution lets it down
16 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was the first episode I watched of THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE and maybe it wasn't a good place to start. LOVE IS BLIND tells a simple, trite story about a jilted husband with murder in mind and a blind singer who seems to have psychic powers alongside an ability to see the future. The two men meet up in a bar on one fateful night...

The production values of this episode are pretty poor, as it has a generally cheap look and feel to it throughout. The scant running time means that the story never has time to develop. While the character of the blind singer is an intriguing one, too much of the short running time is made up of cheesy chase scenes with the cops involved. The acting also felt rather mannered, making this hard to like.
