Nightmares & Dreamscapes Ep. 07:
Autopsy Room Four
Howard Cottrel, a Wall Street money maker, drops dead while playing golf with one of his buddies. An aging doctor who just so happens to be passing through--a doctor on a golf course!? Impossible!--pronounces him dead and wheels his still-warm ass into the local hospital's autopsy room.
Room number four, as it turns out.
Problem is, Howard's not dead. He's just immobilized, and very much aware of his impending procedure.
Much of the "action" takes place in the
autopsy room, while the two doctor's flirt shamelessly over Howard's naked body, and Howard narrates with his thoughts. However, this inner dialogue is rather stiff and rarely comes off as natural.
These quiet and far-too-tame scenes are interspersed with flashbacks to Howard's last day of life, although these aren't any more interesting.
It's an intriguing premise, but one that fails in execution. A mediocre, weak-spined episode.
However, it's about time a boner saves the day.
