    To Anne Serling, the imposing figure the public saw hosting The Twilight Zone each week, intoning cautionary observations about fate, chance, and humanity, was not the father she knew. Her fun-loving dad would play on the floor with the dogs, had nicknames for everyone in the family, and was apt to put a lampshade on his head and break out in song. He was her best friend, her playmate, and her confidant. After his unexpected death at 50, Anne, just 20, was left stunned.

    What would have made As I Knew Him better?

    I'm not sure that anything would have made the story better. It's Ms. Serling's story to tell as she pleases. The primary trouble is that I find her narrative (in a purely auditory sense) terribly distracting.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Since it's in essence an autobiography/memoir narrated by the author herself, there's not much I as a reader can suggest. It would simply be better in print form I think.


    What didn’t you like about Anne Serling’s performance?

    Her performance is acceptable enough (or might be to others) but I find it difficult to focus somehow.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from As I Knew Him?

    It's far easier to "play editor" with visual content. Lacking that in this instance, I can't say.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
