Annoying voice decent story

I HATED the wee professor or scientists voice.. you’ll know who I mean and his acting was terrible.. it’s the first twilight zone actor I’ve really hated listening to, but I paid for it and seen it through.. it was just weak and a bit pathetic.. disappointed as I have always loved listening to these.. one bad apple isn’t bad though I suppose.. the sorry was ok..

I liked it, I guess. ;-)

Classic "sell your soul to the devil" story. With a Twilight Zone spin to it of course. Good acting keeps the story alive (pun intended) until the end. For once I wished for a predictable ending. Still, the ending chosen by Serling may be better. Guess I liked it. ;-)
