I must admit I went into this episode with some doubts as to how it could work well, and had visions that it would come across like many recent episodes had, with a good idea that just doesn’t pan out as well as you would have expected.
I was wrong.
I was impressed with this episode, especially the portrayal of the protagonist Salvadore, played wonderfully well by Don Gordon, in a much better role than his previous appearance in the Twilight Zone in the episode “The Four of Us Are Dying”. Here he is excellent as the man who discovers he can trade physical and mental aspects with another agreeable person, and once he discovers this power he finds a way to get everything that he wants – wealth, power, returned youth. All of this is in an effort to gain the love of the girl he is interested in, whose father is wary of allowing her to join with him.
Everything about this episode works, and especially the end, with the final confrontation between Salvadore and Mr Maitland. It couldn’t have come together any better. An interesting and enjoyable episode.
Rating: Don’t you remember? I sold that to you yesterday! 5/5
