Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: In a way, it can be said that Walter Ryder succeeded in his life's ambition, even though the man he created was, after all, himself. There may be easier ways to self-improvement, but sometimes it happens that the shortest distance between to points is a crooked line - through the Twilight Zone.

'I'm an Accident?'
21 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. Another case of no-one-accepts-that-I'm who-I-think-I-am, like 'Person or Persons Unknown'. A separate category from I-don't-know-who-I-am, like 'Five Characters In Search Of An Exit' and 'Where Is Everybody?'.

You know something is wrong with Alan by the sudden violent action he takes against an aggressive woman preacher at the start. Alan (George Grizzard from 'The Chaser', series one) then is shown as like a regular guy with his fiancée, Jessica. Gail Kobe plays her (later to star in 'The Self Improvement Of Salvador Ross' -Self Improvement was another identity sub-genre in TZ) and this story goes into I-might-be-marrying-a-nutty-guy territory, like 'Young Man's Fancy', 'Nick Of Time', 'Terror at 20,000 Feet'.

Alan goes back to where he was born. That sounds typical of TZ you are thinking.

Wrong! This is no sentimental homecoming. A lesser known but engrossing entry. Well worth seeing and the story really goes somewhere. Not one of those where you have to work it all out for yourself.
