Easily a top ranking episode, complete with a cute nod to SUPERMAN and the ironic casting of Meatloaf as the landlord slash dinner special. Great acting, a classic EC plot, a real winner!

  1. One of my favorites, definately. Godd twist at the end. And who ever cast Meatloaf in that part deserves metal....goes to show he does not take himself too seriously :)

    Cheers!
