Where this episode fails is in its plot being too big for a half hour anthology series. It's rushed. We don't get to know the family outside of they're selfish and cruel or the gardeners outside of being destitute. The way the gift was given was just kind of weird and didn't seem to happen naturally and then we get very little in the way of the lesson that is to be learned. The ending is ambiguous - were things returned as they should be or was everything changed to a fairer and kinder world? But ultimately it doesn't matter because we never really felt the predicament.
