Quotes

Forest Whitaker - Host: [closing narration] Be careful what you wish for. They say the drives of the human primate are to breathe, eat, find shelter and mate. But what part of the psyche is it that never learns when it's had enough? Insurance companies say lightning strikes are acts of God. Hey, maybe he or she has nothing to do with it. Maybe they are just doorways into the Twilight Zone.

Continuation of the Review
8 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

You will note that the previous review was in reaction to the entire episode. Just a couple comments, however. If there is a weakness in the episode it would be Tyler's ability to master the stock market so quickly. Even with his ability to pick up on other's thoughts, especially insiders, he seemed to have a lot of basic knowledge about something that even a novice would have to have experienced. Still, it could be that in addition to reading people, he could have also gained basic knowledge. It was still very good.
