Narrator: [narration] Some push for what they need; some push for what they want. Some people, like Peter Jay Novins, just push. If they do it hard enough, and long enough, something might just push back... from the Twilight Zone.

Dual Personalities and Misused Gifts.
27 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In "Shatterday" a very young Bruce Willis plays dual parts. He is actually the same person that has split in two. I recall an episode of "Star Trek" where Kirk splits into a compassionate, but weak, character, while his evil side manifests itself. This offering has Willis arguing with his alter ego who has all the positive qualities that the original didn't have. In "A Little Peace and Quiet" a woman who is indeed clobbered by sound, digs up a necklace that allows her to not only bring quiet, but put everything in suspended animation. She is sort of dumb and can't think of anything positive to do with this amazing gift. She is so enamored with her bit of quiet, she doesn't listen to people who would threaten the future of the world. I believe this is a variation on an episode that premiered on the original show. I have to admit that the world this woman lives in is so full of constant motion and sound, I don't really begrudge much of what she does.
