Overall this TFTD episode is one of the better ones, it features good acting from TV comedy man Harry Anderson and the plot is interesting and good. Anderson is an out of work TV screen writer who needs a job, plus he's lonely in his apartment, but he always takes calls from his answering machine. All of a sudden this answering machine takes on a life of it's own a talking voice that starts to talk for him and leave messages to other people pretending to be his voice. Basically this is a machine taking over the life of a man! At first this seem odd only finally a shared plan is thought of between answering machine and man as the Anderson character takes it's advice on his new job, and this will finally work to his advantage! Really this was a well done episode that featured good acting with a good story, and it sent a message this during the mid 1980's that machines of all types are taking over man and they are really the future!
