Given the excellent stories that had come one after the other, there was always going to be a downside sooner or later. And for me that is this episode, which leaves a bit to be desired.
The idea behind the story is sound, a man who is able to change his face to look like anyone he puts his mind to. That could be a pretty handy skill. And the way our huckster goes about his schemes is fair enough. But seriously, are we expected to believe that he changes his face into a boxer he sees on a bill, and then happens to run into that person’s father – not once, but TWICE! – and that he has a serious grudge against him? C’mon guys. Not likely.
Whether this is a Twilight Zone episode or just a crooked crook show is debatable. It didn’t pull any strings with me.
Rating: You need a back-up face pal. 2/5
