Cranky wife

Oh my! What a cranky wife! Edgar is a fantastic engineer, and like most engineers he is very involved in his work. His wife has become quite cranky about life and expresses her dissatisfaction with her husband because he doesn't fix items around the house, he just 'plays with his junk'.

Very good Twilight Zone story, just a bit depressing for a quick listen.

- Tina "I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel."

Good idea for a story. So so execution.

Good idea for a story. Pretty fun (if a bit goofy) dramatization. The alien is the best part. He (it) is mainly what makes this a recommended listen. The geeky scientist and the nagging (and racist) wife is stereotypical in the extreme. Good sound effects as usual.

Only, just once I'd like to hear a geek / nerd part spoken with something else than a whiny voice.
