Nice Episode with a Great Message
11 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A black man with a brain tumor which is inoperable is truck by a car finds himself back in 1968 in Memphis, just before the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. He ends up with a family, a woman and her son, who care for him. When he finds out about the date, he tries to put a stop to the assassination. Eriq LaSalle is excellent in this very touching portrayal of a man who wants to have a reason to live. I wish more of the episodes had the heart that this does. Not maudlin in the least.
