Failed oddball episode
11 October 2013 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Bitchy theatrical director Andrea Caldwell (shrilly played to the snarky hilt by Carolyn Seymour) finds herself stuck in a surreal dream world created by browbeaten stagehand Otto Sehrog (a hammy and colorful performance by Lou Cutell). Several of Andrea's colleagues find themselves trapped in this ever-changing alternate reality as well. The key problem with this episode is that writer/director Timna Ranon never manages to make the baffling story come together in a coherent and satisfying way; instead the jumbled plot just runs around in repetitive circles without ever going anywhere. Moreover, Andrea makes for an irritating and unsympathetic main character whose strange plight is impossible to care about. The other characters are too underdeveloped to elicit any concern, too. On the plus side, fetching blonde Shannon Kriska does provide some mighty tasty eye candy. However, the open-ending conclusion proves to be quite frustrating and overall this one qualifies as a confounding mess.
