Edmund, you're an idiot--go out and get a life!
15 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a reasonably entertaining episode of "The Veil"--a series about the supernatural which was never picked up by the networks. Oddly, however, they made 10 episodes and later a few of the episodes were slapped together to make a feature film. Like all but one of them, Boris Karloff is the host and acts in the teleplay as well.

Edmund is smitten with Marie. However, Marie is a conniver and announces to him that she's leaving him to get married to another--simply because the other man is rich! As she leaves, she gives Edmund a strange gift--a crystal ball. Over the next weeks, instead of getting over this and finding another as his uncle (Karloff) insists, he just mopes around the house--staring into this magical crystal ball. This is because, oddly, he seems to be able to see Marie where ever she goes! What's next for Edmund and Marie? See the show.

This is a pretty good episode though it's less entertaining than some because I found Edmund to be a whiny loser. Hearing him talk incessantly about Marie made it difficult to like the guy and I just wanted to smack him and tell him to get a life! Still, it was modestly entertaining and unique.
