Journeying through a remarkable cyberspace looking glass, Alex finds himself the doppelganger in a story about an Italian painter named Giocomo. Rather than let himself, as Giocomo's animated shadow, take over, Alex restores Giocomo, but upon returning home, Alex's own shadow takes on life, telling Lily what her kids have been up to in the Cyber Museum, wooing Cloe's friend Jennie, challenging a teacher's precept on a classic horror novel, and devising a very special future for Barbara.

While this particular episode deals openly with the concept of a world within a world within a world (the imagined world of a mirror, as seen within the world of cyberspace, as seen within Alex and Cleo's reality), audiences have already been taken there, seeing the Cyber Museum's cyberspace worlds, within Alex and Cleo's reality, within the television audience's viewing reality. It thereby makes this episode a world within a world within a world within a world. See more »
