Revisiting The Twilight Zone: S3 E30

Season 3: Episode 30: Hocus-Pocus and Frisby

Ah, the old tall tales, and the places they can lead you to. I enjoyed this episode, as much for its humorous content and obvious by-play as for anything else. The fact that it played off the ease with which you would expect an alien posse to be confused as to the most intelligent or popular of human life forms was excellently done. Watching an old pro like Andy Devine play the lead character, who spins tales of untruths in such a way that he almost believes himself that they are the truth was a joy. This combined with the general politeness of the alien beings, and their mistaken ideas of what they were aiming to locate, makes for a fun and easily digested episode.

Rating:  Always carry a harmonica.  4/5
