An amusing episode
27 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although it is not clear how she got from her own universe to the parallel(?) one, it does not matter. The humor of this episode lies in the fact that the people in the society where everyone remembers past lives are miserable because of it, suggesting that the protagonist's therapeutic work helping people to remember their past lives is not only useless in the new world but was of questionable value in her old one.

In one scene, she overhears a man in the new world saying that his boss has it in for him and has had it in for him in previous lives as well. People in this world frequently commit suicide because they know they will be reincarnated and so if things are not working out, they might as well start over. The clever denouement is made inevitable by the fact that past life regression is the opposite of what these people need.
