October 13: Tales from the Darkside: Slippage. Rating: 3/5. Comment: The idea is interesting: a man begins to realize that every trace of his life is quickly being erased, as though he had never existed. The execution was dreadful: an unknown catalyst launched unclear development of the initial problem, the actors were inept, the characters were unrealistic, the dialogue was improbable, at best — at one point, when the wife begs her husband to sit after a long day so she can have the honor to fix him a drink, I asked Josh, “What Twilight Zone are they living in?”. He replied, “I don’t know but I want to visit!” This episode was based off a short story, which was inspired by It’s a Wonderful Life. Hopefully this was the end of the line for the imitation train.
Peace and love.
