Superb, Masterful Storytelling
30 July 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a wonderful episode. It would stand up as an excellent mainstream movie. It involves a lawyer's effort to bring to trial and punish a man who, at Auschwitz, killed his mother in cold blood. The man was pure evil. He works hard to come up with evidence. So much time has passed and there is little that would hold up in court. He confronts the man (in his eighties now) on the street, but is seen as a pest and at best cruel. He enlists the help of his ex-wife, another lawyer, but she advises him to forget it. It's much too complicated and the guy isn't going to be around much longer. Enter a time traveler, who, by using a watch, is able to actually go to Auschwitz in 1944 and observe. He is able to provide our lawyer with evidence to use against the guy. There are some wonderful plot turns and the acting is superb. One could take issue with the implications of traveling back in time, but at least it is not ignored by the characters.I couldn't take my eyes off this episode, certainly a high point for the series. The Auschwitz scenes are as graphic as Schindler's List and capture the heartlessness of the SS.
