Twilight Zone classic style

Any additional comments?

This story is quick and true to the style of The Twilight Zone. It is hard to hear Lou Gossett Jr read this. It sounds like mumbling at times. I was glad that most of the time I listened in the house instead of in the car.

The story is sad and a bit creepy. I believe those are positive words for describing The Twilight Zone. HA!

Yet another Twilight Zone classic done well!

Lou Gossett Jr. recreates the role of Steel perfectly. He punctuates an overall weary voice with moments of dogmatic optimism on a level that makes the listeners feel abject pity and embarrassment for his character. The radio play version captures each nuance of Matheson's original treatment. It shows a man who is desperately afraid of becoming useless and obsolete; so much so that he is willing to risk his very own life to prove that change is not always the best option.
