Really different mixture that works.
2 August 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

Stars: Paul Dooley and John Fielder.

This episode is so atmospheric. It's about shoe salesman (Dooley) Chester staying at a hotel during a snow storm, the owner played by John Fielder who until he passed away in 2005 played Piglett on Winnie the Pooh. He stays in a room where music starts up and a beautiful woman shows up and starts dancing with him. It's kind of romantic, but mostly the whole episode is well directed and the atmosphere is very nice. The ending is quite disturbing, but not too much to ruin this great episode. Found on VHS volume 4.

My rating: Great episode. 22 mins. TV PG SV
