Very clever. RMT always seems to have stories with a twist ending.

There is a bit of a twist ending but not enough to make me like this tale. No suspense in this story. I like CBS Mystery Theater best when the suspense builds throughout. This was not that type of story. I will say that it was interesting enough and relatable. A lot of people are down on their luck, feel trapped, and can't see a way out. Not my favorite.

I thought this was one of the best episodes ever! The dialogue was so witty and funny. Even though there were sad elements of the show, the humor was hilarious, so it was a laugh a minute. Evie Juster was excellent as the old witch. She is often good at playing interesting old ladies, but gave the witch such a cute, adorable personality, so she was especially good. Anyway, as for the people being trapped, the young man was happy in the end and got out of his situation, so it was a happy ending. The crooked, nasty guys didn't get off so good, but it was funny how she got rid of them. A lot of CBSRMT episodes don't have a happy ending at all and people often get murdered, or they end up in hell by the end of the episode, lol! I just couldn't stop laughing at this episode. The dialogue was extremely well written. I love the suspenseful CBSRMT dramas too, but their comedy episodes are some of the best sometimes. I think if you listen to this episode with the idea that it has to be really serious, it might be disappointing, but as a comedy it is absolutely brilliant! I think their particular show was meant to be comical. If one is familiar with CBSRMT, one begins to notice that they do have a funny episode every once in a while. I enjoy that and I find it refreshing once in a while.
