Like many episodes of the original Twilight Zone series, this episode plays into the idea of a man who sets out to get more than what he might have earned and discovers out that there is more to life than what he originally believed.

CBS All-Access is also offering viewers a chance to get a one week of the streaming service for free. However, it's worth noting that CBS All-Access releases its shows on a weekly basis, and the entire series isn't available to stream yet.
