Storyline

Seth is interested to see the catalog-ordered Verona XG-20 remote he just got appears to be universal: it works on the stereo, as well as the TV. But he is even more amazed when, turning it on "pause" on his younger sister Jamie as a joke really does stop her tap-dancing! He is then informed by Tony on the still-playing tape that came with the remote that: "It's not a toy!" Eager to see what else it can do, he continues testing it: rewinding/fast-forwarding passersby, hitting channel change so the school bully transforms into something more benign. But soon he goes on to bigger things, like pausing his class and teacher to cheat on tests, or his family when they want him to give the remote to Jamie, despite his best friend's opposition. After all, none of Tony's phone-recorded warnings mean anything. Right? Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net
