Five for old TZ, five for Klugman, five for Winters. Five more for Jonathan Winters boasting about his sexual conquests.

This is what all the "Twilight Zone" remakes get wrong: they think the strength of the original series was in its twist endings, when what made it work was the character interaction. In this one, the twist ending barely even rates as such -- more like spelling things out for the dullest 5% of the audience -- but what sells the episode are Klugman's resentment and ambition, and Winters' voice of experience.
That's pretty much the problem with almost all American TV in the past 15-20 years.

Rod Serling was a master of writing for television (with Beaumont and the rest), and that is what made this series work.

Wow I just found out these are all on remastered Blu Ray.
Watched all but Season 4 on Netflix recently. Season 3 was amazing.

This one was pretty cool. I like the idea of the afterlife being a terrible never ending repetition of whatever you are good at in life.
