It’s a Good Life

Its a good life Episode 73 (3 November 1961)
A village is in another dimension without power and all its inhabitants frightened by a monster that controls your thoughts and do not bear to be contradicted. This monster is a six years old child, not even his parents are encouraged to question his thoughts for fear of his cruelty and his supernatural powers.
The kid is great as a capricious and cruel monster. Perhaps this episode criticizes parents who do not know how to set limits to the kids and end up doing what they want. But you can see the messages between the lines of the mother, when she lets him go and play at the barn (he may fall, that would be bad…).
Score: 8
