Historical romance guff/timewaster
5 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

SONG OF THE YOUNGER WORLD is a historical romance with a supernatural twist, hence its presence in THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE. This sort of tale of forbidden love was done better previously in another episode (I can't recall the title of it right now) and the execution here is very middling, which doesn't make for much in the way of entertainment.

The setting is the early 20th century, and the protagonist the pupil of a reform school who falls in love with the daughter of this mean old duffer (who looks a lot like Peter Cushing, except without the acting ability). The protagonist is an earnest bore, but the object of his affection is the long-forgotten Jennifer Rubin (A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS). What transpires isn't particularly bad, it's just that there's a seen-it-all-before vibe going on.

THE GIRL I MARRIED is a short and completely forgettable story. There's a supernatural twist in the tale of a middle aged guy who ends up reminiscing over a lost love only to have her materialise in his own home. The emphasis of all this is on regret and the chance to live your life again and truth be told it's not very interesting or indeed relevant for this series.
