In 1906 San Francisco, many famous people gather at a hotel
to hear renowned opera singer Enrico Caruso perform. However, a bellboy at the
hotel suddenly has visions of impending mass destruction and death, but he
can't get anyone to listen to him.
The lead, Perkins, was played by character actor David Opatoshu, known for similar emotional types. He kind of hams it up in this role, though you'll want to bitchslap Gregg Stewart (newspaper printer) later in the episode. Everybody's mean to Perkins except the nice Italian couple staying at the hotel.
His weaselly co-worker was played by Olan Soule, later most famous as the first man to voice the cartoon version of Batman. Like the phone sex lady in that old Aerosmith video, an voice actor doesn't need to look like the character he's playing.
Not a great episode, but the quake FX are well-done.
