I just finished "Replay", it actually started out very well and grabbed my interest. A few twists and turns and then it seemed to take on a black (people/person's) agenda. I have NOTHING against any race, creed or colour of people but this episode seemed to target the black community and audience (not to mention the "black lives matter" poster in one scene). I have the new Twilight Zone set up on my PVR and will give it another few chances. It started out great and then seemed to take on a lot of issues regarding the current landscape of America and their racial issues that did nothing to propel the story. A similar story could have been told from the same point of view without all of the racial overtures. I do not have any of those issues and was hoping for a similar reboot of the Rod Serling series. I'm not old, I'm not young but what I watched, unfortunately, was not what I had hoped for. Mr. Peele, please keep on the track of the original series, try not to bring your personal opinion on race, political views or social standing into what could have been a solid reboot of a classic.
