Like most TZ comedic episodes this one isn't very funny, but it is likable however and a different approach to a story about wishes, so it's 7/10 for me.

I'm sitting on the opposite end here, Rorschach. A recycled idea is presented in this vignette, and in all honesty, I wasn't thrilled with it. All the vignettes are silly, but 'Children's Zoo' I thought was a cute idea. Here, though it's very different from the genie episodes of the original, it just feels dull. I guess my interest in quirky, comedic Zone episodes continues to be down.

3.

Fair enough lazy, it is nothing special, it's a while ago since I last saw it, maybe I was feeling generous lol.

A 6 from me. The Wish Bank must be run as a British governmental department!

I just watched this again, God knows what I was thinking rating it a 7 originally, it's crap, I think I'd give it a 2 if I could vote again.
