Twist That Plot to Twist
20 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

In this offering, a man who has a history of alcoholism is suddenly in the middle of a situation where he can't remember events necessary to deal with it. The "Blackout" in the title involves his past. The problem with this episode is that the crooks are monumentally stupid. They seem to have their eyes on some guy who never appears and our guy is mistaken for him. Poor Jack Carson is trying to lead a clean life after spending part of it in prison, but these fellows can't seem to leave him alone. There is also a man who is seeking to avenge his son and things get more and more difficult to follow. It's almost as if a group of writers were in a room saying, "OK. Let's do this. No let's do this.
