Interesting, but another confusing tale from this show...
2 December 2014 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Graphic Designer Rich Hall (Patrick Kelley) seems to be slowly but surely, phasing out. His High School doesn't seem to remember him, and even his own Mother snubs him. Rich thinks it's all an elaborate scheme between his wife (Armstrong) and his friend Chris (Casnoff) . The truth is, Rich is slowly being erased from history. This episode was watchable and fairly suspenseful, but it makes very little sense! That's the problem I have with this show. The episodes seem to be written haphazardly. The creativity is there, but it is stifled due to the lack of coherency. You always know what you're gonna get with this show! Weird psychological tales that lack a budget and confusion. This episode had all the potential in the world to be something special. WHY is he slowly being erased from history? What is the cause of all of it? They barely delve into it and give us a sloppy explanation in the end to make this one end with a whimper. It gives us a cheap "moral message" that letting your life pass you by can cost you. It angered me because there is good tension and it did grip me. Patrick Kelley is alright as the lead. He's too sleazy looking to be a likable hero. Watch Commando and you'll see what I mean. Kerry Armstrong is hotter than donut grease and I enjoyed her performance. It keeps you guessing, but that isn't a good thing this time around. As suspenseful and interesting as it is, it craps all over it with an incoherent script. A longer running time and more explanation would have been ideal! What a shame...

6.1/10
