2 August 2006 | TOMNEL
| An odd romantic tale.
With guest star Ronnee Blakely (from a Nightmare on Elm Street)

A silly woman believes a fortune teller machine named Horrace X is a god and can tell her future. She falls in love with the machine, sort of, but realises that she has been led down the wrong path by herself all these years. This is one of those happy romantic pick me up episodes, that picks you up even though it's not necessarily happy. My problems with the episode are that it just isn't very interesting and that it is an instantly forgettable episode. Not my cup of tea and it's probably not yours either.

My rating: OK episode. 22 mins. TV PG
