Uneven But Fun
William Smith | Fontana, CA United States | 03/19/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Bard*** 1/2 First of all I'd never heard of this ep outside of this dvd. I generally do NOT like the comedy Zones for when I watch the Zone I prefer serious Sci-Fi but all has been saved here with a tremendous performance of "Shakespeare". He is quite funny and ironic. The star of this ep is almost as endearing and about the first 5 min. of this ep you will hate it ... but let Serling do his magic and you too will see the magic of the Bard. The ending is silly though and adds little to the script ... I thought a nice touch would have been had he conjured up Serling himself! ... and the producers would have acted as though they'd never heard of him!The Fear*** : This ep started out smashingly put alas was ruined by a terrible ending. An obvious 5 season ep. The two leads, in fact the only two people seen in this ep are actually very good actors, so good in fact they acount for all of the three stars because the story wasn't much either.The Bewitchin Pool**** : I bought this dvd for this ep and was a bit let down (I thought this would be a 5 ringer). I marvel at why the beginning of the ep they actually show you the end! Aunt T is great the kids are good too, I watched this one several times in my youth and have since loved it. A surprisingly endearing ep which has a few too many overdubs with the voice work but in the end spins a story that I imagine is a dream of many, the simple life."
Great Series

"I have a whole stack of episodes from this series.I wouldn't say every episode is brilliant,but some realy leave you thinking.Here is a good selection from the series.Makes me wonder at times where they got the ideas for these episodes.There is nothing quite like it on Tv these days,they rely too much on special effects rather than a good script and fine acting.The twists and turns to each episode keep you interested."
