  • The problem for the lovebirds was Roger's mother, who didn't approve of Anna, and Roger had no backbone

      From 1992, The Ray Bradbury Theater: Some Live Like Lazarus opened in a very intriguing way. We, the viewers, walk up to a house where a woman is seated on her porch. She greets us and says she’s been expecting us. Naturaly, we want to know the story of the murder. That’s the start, and then over the course of the next half hour, we learn her story.

      The woman

      is Anna, portrayed by Janice Rule as an adult. As a child, Kristin Darrah plays her and then later on it’s Katie Wolf. The subject of Anna’s affections was a boy named Roger, played by Yannick Bisson, Leon Woods, and Noel Trevarthen. We learn of their love story in a series of flashbacks, watching them age through time.

      The problem for the lovebirds was Roger’s mother, who didn’t approve of Anna,

      • and Roger had no backbone. Smartly, Anna didn’t wait around. In this sense, part of this science fiction story is soap opera. There’s so much game playing going on. Then it turns into the murderous plot with Roger taking matters into his own hands. However, it doesn’t quite turn out the way one might think.

        The story gets a little convoluted with poems about falcons and maybe murders.

        Like many of

        Bradbury’s tales, this one had an intriguing start that had me curious and eager to see what was going to come, but then sort of fizzled out. The direction of the plot twisted and turned so much that after a while, it didn’t matter what the point was, if there was one.

        In the end, my impressions are more negative than good. I actually felt let down by the progression of the story.
