      Consider The Ray Bradbury Theater: On the Orient, North, Bradbury’s version of Murder on the Orient Express, which is even referenced at the very beginning of the episode. It features Magali Noel as Minerva Halliday who offers to help someone described only as ‘the ghastly passenger’. Frankly, I don’t get the fascination. The lighting is very dark for their first conversation so that only their

        Then they’re back on the train going towards his destination. Actually, they are on and off trains, and I suppose that for whatever reason, he has a hard time with people. She’s helping him to survive being with people. Then he ends up levitating as he’s telling children a story. It’s just all a very

        weird tale, and I’m not sure what the purpose is. I guess he wants to go home to die, though he’s dead already.

        Maybe it’s a story that actually needs more time to tell it in because it moves very choppily from one piece to the other. Maybe Bradbury’s just outdone me on this one. Perhaps it’s just one very odd love story.

        This one is not for me.
