A harsh take on spending to much it will take away everything in one's life one by one!
22 May 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

For decades the American public has been dealing with credit cards and the need and want for materialism, spending more wanting more let's just say living above your means. Yet that has bad vibes to it as one by one a person can have their belongings taken away they can even have their soul and identity vanish literally. And this "TZ" episode from season 2 1987 titled "The Card" showcases that theme just perfect, but also it shows that a lifestyle of to much can lead to a cruel and harsh end.

The tale has Susan Blakely as Linda a California housewife with three little boys, along with her husband she has a beautiful home and nice material things. Most of this has come on credit, now that she's with a new credit company that's titled just "The Card", a harsh lesson is about to be learned. As with any credit card company fees and hidden rules apply so when the bills become due quick it hurts Linda. Then one by one this new credit card company starts to take away Linda's most loved possessions like her pets, then oddly enough one by one her children and husband simply vanish into thin air! Then next it's her house and automobile.

This episode was really harsh it shows that depending on credit for life will eventually backfire in a very wicked and harsh way it will strip you of everything from possessions and loved ones as soon you will not exist. Good lesson for those who overspend material things are not worth throwing your life away.
