Pyrotechnics Light Up The Screen
2 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is very strong in the special effects area. The sled to nowhere powered by rockets to the secret passageways are quite effective. The sequence with the whirring sharp blades coming from the ceiling down is more deadly looking than Poe's Pit & The Pendulum though it is definitely is inspired by the story.

This episode has a lot of entertaining sequences including Artie's panic after the rocket sled release only to have Jim show up. Where were you Jim? Just working on the railroad Artie.

Overall an effective and imaginative episode with a sharp ending. While the sequences are a bit choppy, they are good enough that it does not spoil the overall action on this episode.
