This was a good story and had all the elements for a great storyline. Also this was a great storytelling told by an utter nonsense.

Eat Dirt

I love The Twilight Zone and will be getting the Volumes. Beaumont, Matheson and Serling, wrote the majority of the episodes. They were great writers. This story falls a little short. It is predictable and really not scary. The production and the narration are excellent and really enhance the experience. For the small amount of money it is, you might want to give it a try.

Weird Twist

Ok... Not great or surprising. Read in a very deadpan, monotone voice. Could have made this a great one !

Disappointing

As a longtime fan of The Twilight Zone TV series and radio dramas in general, I was really looking forward to this. The performances were good, but the story didn't hold up. First, it was a 20-minute story stretched to fill 40 minutes, making for a very slow script. Secondly, there was not a single sympathetic character, leaving me in a hurry to get out of this house and this neighborhood as fast as possible. Thirdly, the ending just didn't go anywhere. I was hoping for a "juicy" revelation about the dirt, but there was nothing there. I'm glad this was free and no longer than it was; otherwise I would be asking for a refund. It certainly did nothing to encourage me to buy additional segments of this series.

Not a complete story

This round spent so much time showing how the main character was a cheapskate that it forgot about how to wrap up the ending. Not the Best Of The Twilight Zone by any means.

The lead actor was very unbelievable.

The story was decent with a decent enough twist at the end, but the lead's performance was very unbelievable. He just phoned it in. I didn't really believe he was going through any of it. The rest of the cast was good though.

That's weird.

Weirdness that is reminiscent of Rod Sterling who could ask for anything more than that.

Wonderfully narrated!

A wonderfully narrated show! All of the mystique, thrill and suspense of the television series vividly narrated.

An Audio Roller Coaster

This story was one that I've never watched on television. Although this is an old story from years before I was born it left me wondering where the story would end. It was a complete surprise. I knew it wouldn't end well for someone, but I never figured it out until it was all over. This was well worth the listen.
