Revisiting The Twilight Zone: S05E18: Black Leather Jackets

Revisiting The Twilight Zone: S05E18: Black Leather Jackets

Here is another episode where the story and plot is interesting enough, but it doesn’t hold my interest anywhere near to the end, where I pretty much switched off halfway through mentally and waited for the conclusion to come.

Having the three main characters as the bike riding, leather jacket wearing youths, allowing them to be avoided by all of the townsfolk works well enough, but I guess it is the love interest part of the story that holds me back. I see why it is necessary given that it is where we discover everything that these three are a part of, it’s just that it isn’t believable enough for me to invest in. And when the end comes around, and Scott decides to try and convince Ellen to run away with him, only for the inevitable conclusion to arise, it just doesn’t feel… enough. Something is missing. Probably just my interest.

Rating: Hell bent for leather. 3/5
