Black Comedy That Doesn't Work That Well
25 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A rather plain female hypochondriac confines herself to an unnecessary wheelchair. She is obviously agoraphobic and lives her days in an aging apartment building with her long- suffering husband. The building is up for sale and the tenants, a pack of wolves and lowlifes, are resisting the sale openly (though in their thoughts they are thinking about a payday). The central figure attempts to find something to make the building unattractive to a buyer, hoping to stay there at infinitum. While in the basement laundry room with a radon detector, she hides from a couple of tenants who are having sex (they each have significant others in the building). While this is going on, she falls into some wiring and receives a shock. Upon recovering her senses, she develops the ability to hear the thoughts of the others in the building. After coming to terms with this, she attempts to use the secret knowledge to set neighbor against neighbor. But she forgets how vulnerable she is herself. She is widely resented, seen as a weak worthless demanding creature with her petty ailments. The bad thing about this episode is that it is utterly confusing. It's really hard to see the motivations of the characters and when she begins her plot, it is so outrageous that it shouldn't even remotely work. Also, as people slide in an out of their open and conscious thoughts it becomes so jumbled. Not a very good episode in my estimation.
