Trivia

in his closing narration, Charles Aidman says "ancient maps included unknown lands, named "Terra Incognita", and warnings like 'here there be tygers'", a possible reference to one of Ray Bradbury's stories adapted to be placed on Twilight Zone (1959) (though it never actually was). See more »

Quotes

Max: [reading his review] "Mr. Lee's Chinese Cuisine: If you love your Pekingese, don't ask for a doggie-bag"? Is Mr. Lee's really *that* bad?
Harry Folger: I wouldn't know. I've never had the displeasure of dining there.

Past Amazon ghost brought to life by camera?/aliens in woods?/A cookie of misfortune!
25 January 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is episode 14 of "The New Twilight Zone" from the 1985-1986 CBS series. It featured three segments the first "Still Life" a neat and clever tale, second "Little People of Killany Woods" an Irish alien tale and best and last "The Misfortune Cookie" "Still Life" involves a couple that's just moved who recover many old and antique house items come across an old style camera. And the husband played by Robert Carradine discovers that photos of a 1913 Amazon expedition is present inside of the camera. Only oddly these old warriors come to life out of the camera and attack! The trick and only way to get rid of them is flash and snapshot them by flashing the ancient camera and taking pictures! Really a neat and good concept story.

The worst and second story is a drag simply about an Irish pub that does the typical bar stuff like talking, drinking, and grieving only to discover the rumor is true that little men alien like live in their woods. It's rightfully titled "Little People of Killany Woods".

Last and best episode of revenge for the fact that it brings moral justice. Titled "The Misfortune Cookie" stars movie and TV veteran Elliott Gould as Harry Folger an arrogant and crude rude food critic who trashes the ingredients and menus in his newspaper column. Yet as one sees in life you meet your match when eating at a Chinese place and after giving it a bad review, the fortune cookie he receives at last turns out to be a misfortune! Really well done a great twist of revenge and karma! This episode alone makes it worth a watch.
