It Just Wasn't in the Cards
30 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this first episode. In a way, it's sort of satisfying to watch a woman who is totally irresponsible get nailed by a credit card company. She has only seven days to make full payments, but in her addled brain, what's the worst that could happen? That's the significant question. One day her cat disappears, then her dog, and on and on. Very clever use of the outrageous. The second, "The Juncture," involves two men trapped in a mine explosion. The kicker is that they entered that mine seventy years apart. They develop a relationship as time goes along as hey await rescue. There is also a supernatural element that rears its head.
