Trivia

At around 8 minutes, the Comedy/Tragedy masks that flank either side of the stage are quite similar to those shown in the original The Twilight Zone (1959) episode The Twilight Zone: The Masks (1964). See more »

Goofs

When Samir's phone can't find Deven Singh in his contact list, we're shown the D section of the list to confirm his absence. The list is however sorted by Surname, Given Name so Devon's entry would be under S not d. See more »

Quotes

[closing narration]
Narrator: Samir Wassan learned the hard way that sometimes, getting everything you want means losing everything you love. And after finally finding himself on the verge of becoming somebody, he chose instead to once again be a nobody. In the end, Samir's final encore is a show you can only buy a ticket to in The Twilight Zone.

Very predictable - they coulda woulda shoulda done better
2 April 2019 | by jeaninerubySee all my reviews

If this premier episode is the caliber of the new Twilight Zone, it's gonna get cancelled very fast. What a total letdown.
