Myron Castleman is reliving the same hour again and again and again....
9 September 1999 | by (South FL) – See all my reviews

I originally saw this dramatic short as an interstitial subject on TMC in the early '90s and fell instantly in love with it.

The plot involves a mild-mannered businessman named Myron Castleman, played with exquisite pathos by Kurtwood Smith (That 70s Show). Myron is the only one who is aware that time keeps on bouncing back to 12:01PM after only an hour passes. Desperate to find an end to this, he seeks out a scientist who has predicted this phenomenon. Trying time and time again to contact him, Myron's worst fear is confirmed. It will never stop.

Kurtwood Smith's portrayal of the temporally doomed Myron Castleman is one of the best of his career. Smith is probably better known to cinephiles as the heartless criminal Clarence Boddicker from the movie Robocop.
