Movie Reviews

Good but had slow moments
Willie Montgomery | Denmark,South Carolina | 12/15/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I watched the episode several times and had taped it off the TV.The cast was fine but Diana Rigg's character was not evil enough.And Aisling O'Sulivan's character should had been made more of a victim of her mother's acts in the story.Matthew Modine was great but he could had been given a better script.I did like Diana Rigg in her performance in Mother Love and Aisling O'Sullivan in the Wyvern Mystery.Both of the stories kept me glued to the TV.I still give this episode a passing grade but the studio should had done more to make it better."
