Quotes

[Last line of "To See the Invisible Man"]
Narrator: A small footnote found in the court records of some parallel world. The name of Mitchell Chaplin, who served his sentence of invisibility and learned his lesson well. Too well. This time, however, he will wear his invisibility like a shield of glory. A shield forged in the very heart... of the Twilight Zone.

The middle tale's the one to watch
15 May 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The second segment of this episode, TO SEE THE INVISIBLE MAN, has a decent idea behind it and a good execution to boot. It involves a totalitarian society where, as punishment, people are socially ostracised after being branded for their crimes. The protagonist of the story is such a guy, somebody who must come to terms with people passing him by in the street as if he's a literal invisible man.

The story deals with social isolation in a very moving and unforgettable way and there are some great little performances in here too. I particularly liked the twist ending, which is heart-warming in the extreme; this is an episode that gets it just right, a rare beast for this show.

The last story is entitled TOOTH AND CONSEQUENCES; the title alone is stupid so that gives you some idea of the content. The main character is a stressed-out dentist who gets a visit from the magic tooth fairy...I can barely go on. It's just another lame variant of the old "careful what you wish for" story and not even worth the time to watch.
