The episode "Something to Tide You Over" is almost identical to Stephen King's short story "The Ledge", in which a wealthy man forces his wife's lover to risk his life for amusement. "The Ledge" made its way onto film, as the second segment of Cat's Eye (1985).
Norman Castonmeyer's a dinosaur, he's too fucking blind to find his way into the nearest tar pit. Air pollution counts up to almost SEVEN, George! People are out there on the streets dying of Carbon Monoxide poisoning and they don't even know it!
In the segment "Father's Day" - which purportedly takes place on Father's Day (which is in June) - it is already completely dark outside by 7pm. By this time in June it wouldn't be completely dark outside until much later in the evening.
The directorial credits are shown twice: During the opening credits and again during the closing credits.
$5,870,000 (USA) (14 November 1982)
