Did You Know?

Trivia

Names in Death's book after William Breem include Mary Parker, Frank Lord, and Janet Seymour. Those in the final scene when the book is updated and shown again are Anita Matthew, Cathy Wright, and Patty Tacone. See more »

Goofs

Death's book includes some names listed as full names and some as nicknames (see trivia), but it seems it should be completely one or the other, especially since Death refers to one casualty as Bill/Billy Breem so knows of the nickname but has it in his book as William Breem. See more »

Insipid, unoriginal in this genre
21 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately much pressure is exerted when you carry a name with a lot of clout behind it (ask Sean Lennon), I have tried to silence this in myself, but certainly it appears on a subconscious level, but I am disappointed with this series as a whole. In this particular episode, I feel it could have had more bite if it was shorter, and the script needed some action sequences, I was bored at the hospital. You are much better off with the original Twilight Zone (obviously), Tales From the Crypt, or The Outer Limits (either the old one or the new). Jason Alexander gives a perfunctory but competent performance as death, but fails to shock or surprise us with anything. I think we are generally too jaded when it comes to entertainment, but for the record, I don't think anyone in 1959 would have found this groundbreaking either.
