      From February 1988, The Ray Bradbury Theater: The Emissary is a show about a boy and his faithful dog. As a dog lover, I only want to ensure that nothing bad happens to the dog. The boy is named Martin and is played by Keram Malick-Sanchez. He is totally devoted to the animal. He brings home clues for the boy to use with his imagination, to

      see some of what is outside. This is because the boy is sick and confined to bed.

      To prove how great the dog is, Martin tells him to go fetch company. Off he goes, with Martin’s mom calling out for him not to dig. The dog searches through town and finally finds a woman who responds to him. She turns out to be Miss Haight (Helen Shaver),

      • who would be Martin’s teacher if he weren’t bedridden. She goes home with dog and indeed becomes a good friend to Martin.

        This story gets very eerie, but it’s a good eerie. Things transpire that are sad, curious, and perhaps miraculous. The odd thing for me was that I couldn’t stop watching it, when I wasn’t totally sure that I really wanted to keep watching. Part of

        that goes to the dog comment made above. In other words, it’s like this story grabbed hold of me and just wouldn’t let go.

        The end is awesome. You can make of it almost anything you want, but it’s definitely strange and unusual. I liked it. The dog was pretty good; not the best dog actor in history, but he did a good job, as did young Malick-Sanchez.
