A sweet, charming story!

This is a very nice story about a robot grandmother for three kids. It's tender and emotional. A pleasant surprise for the Twilight Zone.
Great performance!

Good performances, but not the story.

Though others may disagree, I did not like the story. Perhaps there was not enough time to build an emotional attachment to the central character. If this had been his only story, one might be convinced that the author didn't really understand love, nor how to build it in real life. Subsequent works, of course, proved quite the opposite.

Great title, OK episode.

Great beginning of this story. Not too much tension or excitement in the rest though. Not a bad episode. Just a bit too sweet and cute.

Somewhat redeemed by the fact that the child actors is actually quite bearable to listen to.
