A time travel story

Time travel from 1890 to the 21st century. Life isn't so bad when we see what others live with. This story is a humorous view of the problems a curmudgeon has when he jumps forward to our time. Quick story and great performance.

THE HELMET OF THE FUTURE

OUT OF THE FRYING PAN AND INTO THE FIRE
The story itself is extremely predictable. I got this because I am a huge fan of Richard Matheson, but he didn't earn his money on this one.

John Rhys-Davis who was in Sliders and the Dwarf in Lord Of The Rings, does an excellent job as narrator.

Time Travel Fun

A great episode with the amazing John Rhys-Davies. Loved him in the Raiders films. A great episode that shows the grass isn’t always greener in someone else’s backyard.

Amazing

First things first: I loved this TV series and it’s amazing I see a full season (or seasons) available at Audible. Full casts, a nice radio drama, a must listen.

Slow and dull

Adam West sounds like he is bored to death! His lazy drawn out speech is horrible. This could've. Even so much more!

Hilarious!

I laughed and laughed. Suberb acting and narration. The characters were colorfully and vividly portrayed. I did not want the episode to end.

Slapstick comedy in the Twilight Zone.

A pretty funny episode. Totally devoid of any trademark T Z creepiness. Just a very light and humorous episode. Well written comedy about anachronisms regarding 1890s vs. today's life. "Knock yourself out". - "Does that mean yes?"

Surprisingly enjoyable. Recommended.
