"I didn't do it!!!"
22 October 2015 | by (ukwitchcountry) – See all my reviews

I just about enjoy the plot/non-plot of this episode, it's strange and slightly interesting. And it is bizarre, even by Crypt standards! It begins with a downtrodden nerdy comic book writer who, after having one of her story pitches rejected yet again by her over-demanding jerk of a boss, snaps and decides to murder him! She goes back to the office and does so later that night, at which point a trigger-happy police squad bursts out of nowhere and shoots her dead - and then things start to get hellishly weird as it appears that this poor gal really cannot catch a break as her bad day start over, and over, and over again... And then it's about how no matter what she does to try to change the outcome, indeed including simply refusing to go anywhere near the office, her boss always ends up dead and she ends up shot full of holes. It's pretty much a lightly macabre take on a Groundhog Day scenario. There is an odd role-reversal twist ending, where it's suggested that it was the Rita Rudner character all along who was the mean boss and the man was in her position and it may or may not have all just been another idea for a tale that twisted and whirl-pooled upon itself... Nope, don't totally get it! It's certainly no classic of the series, but it's not as awful as I remembered it being. It was decent, I didn't love it, but I had fun. It's harmless, it's just so damn crazy! It's not as good, but I like it about as much as "Korman's Kalamity", the other 'meta' episode where "Tales From the Crypt" is actually a comic book, although that one is a lot more endearing and less annoying. Cute oddity of an episode that to me is not downright stinking, but is worth seeing just about for the sheer strangeness of it. Later!
