A long lost love song from the dead!
8 May 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TZ" episode from season 2 is touching and memorable it's a little sad and creepy too. Titled "Nightsong" it involves a long lost love message from the dead, proving that perhaps the message of love and communication may be possible with lost loved ones.

Lisa Eilbacher("An Officer and a Gentleman")is Andrea a late night California DJ who arrives at her local station one night to be asked out on a date from the off going DJ. Only she's not ready for love she still feels the pain of a big breakup. Now it gets interesting as we find out when Andrea plays a record from her long lost love who left, strange things start to happen. As the record plays he reappears! Slowly Andrea begins to fall for him all over again, along the way it's slow and a struggle as to why he left yet the answer is revealed over a California seaside cliff. This clearly was a good by love message from beyond the grave. Overall this is a touching and somewhat painful episode as it gives us hope of communicating with our long lost loved ones.
