Hauntingly beautiful - for those who wish for the good ol days. Very well written & acted.


This was a fantastic episode. If you want something bad enough, can you imagine it into reality? Eric did, but only to a point. 4 stars. Great story.

A young poet longs for the good old days and the colleagues who now rest in their graves, but whose books and work line his shelves. While visiting family, he goes for a walk and comes across a little museum, authentic to the finest detail, and the curator is a lovely woman who is both charming and captivating, and engaged to a soldier on assignment. It emerges that the woman is from the past, 1920’s, while the poet is from the 1970s. How is it that their worlds have collided? Is it possible for him to stay?


Very nice episode. I loved the ending. Nice and creepy. Rather surreal all around. Good, solid acting.


the only victim was sad for her...a sad, sad ending.


All of these episodes are wonderful! Yet, A Bride for Death stands out as the highlight of the premier seasin!

In the early 70's I would be put to bed around 8pm, so bored and wide awake I would take my radio shack transistor radio, wire the antennae to the electrical line I had hanging out my 2nd floor window and start tuning thru AM channels listening to whatever stations I could pull in from afar. One night I came across RMT and the creaking door intro and I was hooked!! I grew up outside Louisville, Ky. And listened to WHAS. I love the episodes with commercials and news of the day, as I can reminisce of days of my childhood.


A romantic episode and a good listen. I'm not much of a romantic, but this was a great episode and acted very well. I just wonder if the character showed his sister the poem at the end and saw that it was his handwriting.


A nice time slip episode probably inspired by the two twentieth century women who strolled on the Palace of Versailles grounds and seen Marie Antoinette alive in her time. But there is one major plot flaw, (besides time travel). Just when Julia declares that Jamie is dead and won't be coming back - Jaime comes back! He says "You know all those long months I was lying in the hospital bed dreaming of you Julia." (Three years, since it was 1921, and the war ended in 1918.) Why didn't Jamie telephone her or even write a letter telling Julia he was alive? Maybe he was in a coma for the first few years, but he couldn't have woken up from a coma just a week ago and then be well enough to travel hundreds of miles back home. He could have written just a month ago - but then that would wreck the plot of Eric and Julia becoming engaged.


Because he didnt know who he was. nobody knew he was. he lost his memory. great episode.


Poet Eric Miller, while horseback riding, comes upon a well-kept Victorian house in which young Julia Sandford, wearing clothes of the 1920s, lives. She invites him in, hoping he has news of her fiancé, missing in action in World War I. Eric’s relatives think he is dreaming because the house, now badly run-down, has been lived in for the past 50 years by a recluse who’s “lost her marbles.” Nevertheless, Eric continues seeing Julia until her fiancé returns and acts like a spurned lover.


I gave this a thumbs down because I couldn’t get past the bad southern accent.
