Alan Richards and his wife are back in New York after living in Africa where he was in charge of a major construction project. His wife was deeply affected after a local witch doctor placed a curse on them and has taken to keeping charms to ward off evil spirits. While Richards doesn't discount the power of the witch doctor entirely, he dismisses her fears as unfounded. Having a drink in a bar one evening he finds that his wife left a protective amulet in his coat pocket. He leaves it on the bar when he leaves - and as a result has a dangerous and frightening walk home, only to find something there waiting for him.Written by
I've been watching the episodes consecutively and so far, it's the worse episode I've seen. I found myself changing channel (which get me out of on demand TV, so I can get back where I left off) at least twice. I wanted to rate this 5/10 or less but I realized the actors gave a good performance and the rest (cinematography, sound, etc.) is up to par.
The story isn't so bad. I blame this major disappointment on the direction or bad script (which is under the direction IIRC). I found myself wondering if at the time there was some strike, which affected the quality. Or perhaps this episode was a filler.
