  • A woman waiting for a bus meets Horace X, a machine that tells her what she should and shouldn't do

    This is a story of a woman who looks to other people for answers instead of believing in and making choices for herself, which ends badly for her. What a silly story that isn't really worth watching. The woman makes so many stupid decisions, you don't even really feel sorry for her at the end of the story. In fact, I wasn't surprised at all. Yes, it is sad what happens to her, but she was asking for it. Overall, this story is hurt badly just by the silliness of the story. It is watchable and even memorable, but not my cup of tea.moreless
