Another Slip Down the Road
20 June 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The episode begins with Leonard Nimoy's character burying his wife. She was an invalid and this makes him free. He hadn't been a good boy, having had affairs with various women including his secretary. One of the things he feels he will not miss is the ringing of a service bell where he has spent his days, answering his wife's every wish. Two things happen. His wife's friend give him a cat which she feels will keep him company. Secondly, the infernal ringing keeps going. Also, the cat morphs into different jungle cats, one time a leopard, the next a tiger. Nimoy begins to go bonkers, spinning around and holding his head. I guess he is being punished for his affairs and for being a jerk, but the episode has no sequence of events that lead anywhere. I don't know if the screenwriter even knew what to do with this.
