Calling child services.

Kid actors trying to carry a whole episode seems like a lost cause. It often ends with a mix of overacting and stilted "reading". The two children here is actually quite okay. The adults are caricatures - horrible parents (no child protective services in the twilight zone I guess) and nice old lady.

A simple story with a bit of uncertainty as to the outcome makes this a (slightly) better than average episode.
