A tease episode!, 24 July 2017
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A tease episode. A well written episode. The segue episodes builds up and up to the capture of Arnold and murder of Simcoe! Suddenly at the climax of Quarry is turn upside into an unexpected plot turn. All build up has no action. Arnold and the units is sent for a surprise raid. What will happen to the plotters? Will Simcoe get Woodhull? Well directed where Simcoe know's about the assassination and the events turns side ways as Arnold appears. Tension, anger, and fear from the characters creates the emotional pathos for a stressful episode. Make me want to watch the next show.Eight out of 10 stars.

eeeeh!, 23 July 2017
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Eeeeh just Okay! Starts out strong a pool shark is challenged by a dead pool legend! The game is for the pool player life. Jack Klugman and Jonathan Winters as the Fats legend was excellent acting. Regrettably, the story bogs down into watching pool. Like watching Espn 5! There is twist and surprise twist and ending. I was like eeeh just okay. More of a t v drama episode. 6 out of 10 stars.

Blah!, 21 July 2017
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Blah episode. There is another super race Nazi spin. People being shipped out of the country etc. Little over bearing ending. Everyone is blurry! A women goes for a medical procedure for being a freak, and wants to fit into society norms. The story drags, and drags with blurry people and the big medical procedure. The ending twists made Eye of the Beholder watchable. When the bandages goes off, and the shadow faces become clears everyone is deformed while the women is a beauty. She gets exported to the island of beautiful people. Which would be every adolescence dream. Saw this episode when I was fourteen on a trip to Nebraska and thought wow I want to go to that island. 5 out of 10. I saw the ending coming a mile away!

One of the best T T Z episodes., 20 July 2017
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Time Enough at Last is one of the best T T Z episodes. A character driven story. Henry and introvert bookworm loves to live in the world of books. Henry hates people interaction and grudgingly works at a bank. Henry is actually a rude individual. Today we would say Henry has agoraphobia. The story unfolds where Henry wants to read alone and finds the bank vault as a perfect space to hermit himself. When break is over Henry leaves the vault to find ash. The vault survived the blast! Time Enough at Last's character development unfolds with Henry not being in despair, but elated Henry could read books all day without the interruptions of others. The plot twist ending with irony has Henry breaking his glasses after collecting the last book to put on the pile of books to read pile. Henry will live in a blurry vision post nuclear world. How the book did not catch fire but everyone died is a huge plot hole, but still a good story. Henry was played by Micky form Rocky. 10 out of 10 stars.

A strong episode., 19 July 2017
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A strong episode. Well written, directed and acted episode. Where Is Everybody has a strong story. A man in a isolated town wonders. Can not get out of a phone booth, and keeps pressing a button at the end by a side walk. A plot twist Twilight Zone ending. The director keeps a slow burn where the viewer wonders what will happen next? What is happening now? Strong acting performance by the loner. A strong physical acting for not much dialog with one character. Dated for today"s series but likable. 7 out of 10 stars.

Neat but too preachy, 18 July 2017
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Neat but too preach! Valley of the Shadow starts out strong. A dog chases a cat starts out a chain of events. The town is a machine which can change time and people. The reporter investigates and a interesting story unfolds. The town guards the secret. Great episode until the bottom quarter. The reporter character flips out, understand the wip out to a point, but goes way too nuts. The reporter shoots several towns people to show the Rod Serling narrative how evil modern society is. Did not mind it. Goodending of time being changed at the ending. Interesting, but over the top social message. 6 out of 10 stars.

Not bad!, 17 July 2017
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Not bad, but average for a Twilight Zone episode. Written by Rod Serling and He's Alive has a few good plot twists and a surprised dark figure. The social message become old with the redundant lurking evil story line we see through out the T V series. But W W 2 was fresh in society's mind back in the early 60's which must had an influence with Serling. I believe evil will be the same but transform into a different unpredictable spin, which I think could have helped with the script. What shines and save He's Alive is Dennis Hopper character shines as Peter Vollmer a Nazi wannabe. One feels and experiences the Vollmer character. Adolf Hitler/mystery character was very accurate an chilling. Stuart Rosenberg directed He's Alive with the proper ebbs and flows, with highs and lows, which mixes characters with each act. 6 out of 10 stars.

The plot thickens!, 16 July 2017

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The plot thickens! Arnold, Woodhull, Major Hewlett, Simcoe, Peggy Shippen, and others all conspire plot for their own reasons, greed, lust, revenge etc in an intertwined devious sub-plots. This will be good! As the spy games begin. Well acted, directed with historical accurate settings! Simcoe character is a believable sick villain. While Woodhull, and Hewlett are the likable noble characters. Everyone detests Arnold and Peggy. The viewer feels the pathos of all the character's story-line arch. Plot-twist, new plot-curve pushes the viewer to the edge. There is a bubbling stew of all the sub-plots which will collide into a nasty calamity! This nasty train wreck will be good. 6 or 7 stars out of ten.

so so!, 14 July 2017
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Beguiled is a so so movie. What worked for the Beguiled is strong acting and casting. Not one bad performance and Kidman along with Farrel shine in their roles. Accurate portrayals of the fear and times of the civil war. The story keeps the viewer guessing of what will happen next. What did not work: The Beguiled was too short and left many open ended questions. Was Farrel's character's motive to woo the women in an attempt to stay out of the war? Did Farrel represent the invading Yankee? Was the Beguiled about sexual frustration and isolation which unbalanced the girls school with the arrival of the wounded soldier? The ending did it have to happen? Was the accident and ending representing the real power of the women's characters? Farrel thought he was playing the women, but in reality it was the women playing him maybe? The ending was lacking. "That's it! Is what I thought."

Surprisingly good, 13 July 2017
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Transformers: The Lat Knight is surprisingly good. My wife and I had low, low, low expectations for The Last Knight. In fact, we only went for the drive inn experience. The driving by Morden is a long drive, but one of the last of last. The Last Knight worked out as movie! What worked: The humor-Hokins and the C 3 P 0 homage Transformer created a British style humor. Cade Yeager(aka Markie Mark)/Vivian Wembley sexual tension has a humor edge like the Old Moonlighting t v series. Surprisingly an entertaining story; A king Author/Merlin story involving Knights and honor. The civilized vs the savage! The modern story is the Evil prince invades an civilization can only be saved by modern Knights, special forces, Transformers etc. Humor/mixed with mid-evil honor brilliantly works. The car/special effects mixed with old Knights works. What did not work: The usual red meat for the comic book audience with the Starwars C G I special effect ending. C G I comic book ending getting old. Un-original, redundant, formulated and predictable. The original Starwars ending was great, but there needs to be a new game changer ending for the genre. Worth heading out to the sticks to see. 7 out of 10.
