A man who slowly loses his identity. And his very existence disappears!
2 March 2009 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode titled "Slippage" from season one is certainly an odd and strange one. It involves a man Richard Hall(David Patrick Kelly) who seems to be desperately stuck in a dead end in his life. Working as a graphic designer all of a sudden he discovers that things in his life are falling in a turmoil. Beginning with his never ending wait to find out that he's been passed up for a job promotion, to the fact that one by one everything seems to be slipping thru the cracks including his relationship with his wife. Richard's mother doesn't even recognize him anymore, plus his wife has taken up with his best friend a friend who was a co worker from his graphic design job. If anything this episode teaches a moral lesson that if in life you let things go by like staying on top of work and if you neglect your wife you lose them and gradually in a cruel and odd way you get forgotten by your mother and eventually lose your self existence.
