You Can Look It Up?
9 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The idea that we are merely figures in a story is an old idea. In this one, a perpetual loser who blames everyone for his mishaps, is about to lose his family. People are suing him and taking his wages. His wife has had enough. But there is a strange entity. A chubby man in an orange jump suit causes all kinds of misfortune for the man. When his problems are explained, the man sounds ridiculous. Until he pushes the little guy to tell him what's going on. Stories are being written for a host of people, making this job almost overwhelming. So he does a brave thing. He goes to the top. Not the greatest episode because the premise is utterly lame and unbelievable. But it does have a decent message.
