One of the better episodes, so far
7 May 2019 | by greg-53682See all my reviews

I have been pretty critical of the previous episodes. Saying that, I actually enjoyed this one. It actually made you feel like it could be a Twilight Zone episode. Even has an ending with a wtf moment. It kind of dragged along in the middle, but felt like the payoff was worth it.
