Tales from the Darkside episode 20: It All Comes Out in the Wash

Carl Gropper (Vince Edwards) wants to pay Chinese laundry man Chow Ting (James Hong) to wash away all his sins. It’s funny, because one of the commercials that George Romero and his crew worked on was the “ancient Chinese secret” ad for Calgon.

It’s a pretty simple concept: you really can’t wash away your guilt. It’s another morality episode instead of a horror one, which is better than the comedy episodes.

Frank De Palma directed eight episodes of this show and edited six, while writer Harvey Jacobs would write five scripts for this and two for Monsters, which is pretty much the same show with a less frightening open and close.
