Not as twisted as some...
Twisted Tales of the Unexpected from the Outer Limits of the Twilight Zone - they are all much the same. Well, this lot was all "twisted" as in the tale had a "twist". Despite how some of them started, they all had down-to-earth explanations: no aliens, time travel, no SF.
The first episode shown was pretty spectacular. A beautiful blonde girl wants her brother murdered. Then here's the twist: he's in a wheelchair and she wants to put him out of his misery humanely. The contract killer refuses. Then it turns out that they've all met before.
Now, all of you wannabe Sherlock Holmeses out there who say that these shows are so predictable: what happens now? Go ahead - make my day.
They were all pretty good. Some better than others. But all a reasonably interesting passing of half an hour. Sometimes you don't need to ask for more.
