Making a call from the Twilight Zone are we? Well at least making one that passes through the Zone at least. Though really, this episode is a little too morbid and a little too sketchy to be rated one of the better ones.
The idea of a toy telephone being used as a link between a boy and his recently deceased grandmother is an interesting and reasonable one. However, the idea of the grandmother using it to coax her live grandson to bump himself off so he can join her… wherever she is… is a bit much surely. And the boy going along with it? Surely not. And then we come to the end of the episode, where the boy has tried to drown himself, and the paramedics say his chances are not good. So the father suddenly jumps on the toy phone and tries to convince his dead mother to let his son live. But how is his dead mother going to do that? Surely she can’t suddenly make him live? Yeah, that bit gets me a little bit.
Rating: Just a little bit too convenient one thinks. 3/5
