6 Stars overall +1 for the twist
16 December 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Let me get one thing clear. The reason why I wanted to see this episode in particular is because... My favourite actress (Emily Perkins) is in this episode. I have watched an episode of the old Twilight Zone and I knew that it was a show you can just jump into at anytime and know what's going on as well as if you see an episode you'll never know what to expect.

The plot is that Melina Kroner (Ione Skye - who I know from the movie Gas Food Lodging but didn't pick up that she was in this) almost gets hit by a car as she was walking her dog. As she goes home she finds a bus with creepy people staring at her wanting to get on the bus. She then goes home to her fiancée. Soon things become weird as people she's never met recognise her and even make claims she used to work at a coffee shop and she begins to forget things about her life while being stalked by the bus.

I am not going to tell you the ending for this episode. Because it is actually a pretty good twist and it is one where clues pop up within the episode. I was actually caught off guard when that happened.

The acting is also pretty good for TV. Most of the cast do bring forward pretty believable performances and the directing is also pretty good in creating the mood of uncertainty and a feel of uncomfortableness that it obviously wants to convey. I also think Forest Whitaker does a great opening and closing narration for this episode.

So if you want to watch this episode I'd say go see it. The acting, directing and opening narration are all pretty well done and this does have a really good twist. If you have 20 minutes to kill, I'd say watch it.
