Watched this last night for the first time. Can't believe I've never seen this one before. Buster keaton is a joy to watch and I love to whole concept of the show. One thing I thought they should have done though, when Rod Serling did his intro near the beginning of the episode, it should have been done in the same style as the rest of the 1890's segment, silent with cards showing what he was saying.

That would've been great, Stephen!

I thought this episode was very odd. I could understand the silent comedy at the start, but found it odd that that the characters in the future were the same. Nevertheless, a very funny episode and Buster Keaton is a top form and hillarious as ever.
