  • An againg actress longs for her faded youth and career.

    The episode comes as a pretty mixed bag. The dialogue while great at times, feels dated at other. Everytime the plot takes a step forward it seems to take another step back, things get intresting then the old dynamic returns. It's not till the Sci-Fi elements are truely introdcued that things pick up, then its little too late, as theres not much exploration of the concept.

    There are some pretty entertaing and intresting moments; when the interviewer finnaly snaps at the annoying actress, and when we learn there is a level of interaction between the film world of her wishes and the real world. Problem is there not enough to lift what is overall a pretty blande story, and I'm also puzzled as to why she reamins in her current age when she longed for her youth. Not offesnivley bad, but forgetable.
