Wow this is bottom of the barrel -- it's got to be. This was just annoying to watch. After placing my vote, I didn't realize we can give a "0" vote. Although this was extremely bad, I guess it can warrant a point for the dumbass title and Birney's irritating performance.

As stated, this is not what TZ is about. Just because a story contains supernatural aspects doesn't make it a Zone or even Zone worthy. However, as bad as this is, there are worse segments. And I must admit, Birney does play the part to irritating perfection. Ken Mars also lifts this a bit higher - shame that this was his only appearance here in the Zone.

David Birney's acting is so bad that it even forced his ex-wife to become GAY! :wtf:

I just watched this piss poor episode again, one thing I noticed which I don't think I did the last time was it's similarity to a few of the worst episodes of the original series, "I Dream of Genie," "Cavender is Coming," and "Mr Bevis." Light hearted unfunny comedies, about magical helpers of some sort, granting wishes which turn out do more harm than good. No wonder I dislike it so much, even even though it's relatively short, the time seems to drag as you watch it. It's a shame the writers of the 80's series didn't learn from the mistakes made in the original; this episode being a prime example of that.

0/10

I don't know if I LIKE it, but I'd watch it again just for the character actors. Few comedy actresses have combined funny and hot quite like Theresa Ganzel.
