An 8 for me, this episode is pretty good, I liked the idea of the convict jumping back to the present whenever he stopped playing the piano, in a way it was a little like "A Stop at Willoughby" the way he sought a place in the past to escape to and succeeded in the end, and even though not comparable to that classic, the neat little twist involving him not only escaping but trading places with someone who really did deserve prison was cool, although I doubt they'd be able to hold him in there for long because in the modern world he hadn't committed any crime.

A solid 8 from me. An enjoyable story with an interesting concept and a great ending.

Great episode that, IMHO, epitomizes TZ. It actually brought me back to the original show (figuratively speaking of course). This type of storyline, a la 'A Stop At Willoughby' or 'Execution', was well-done and made for fun entertainment with the time traveling.

9!
