Living in the Past

I didn't end up watching both episodes, as my son wanted to end on an episode of Portlandia (which has actually been our pattern after TZ episodes) because the Twilight Zone is "creepy." At least he's watching them with us. Who knows how long that will last.

So an aging actress can't cope with reality. As unlikeable as she was, I still couldn't help but feel sorry for her, as I feel sorry for anyone who is not able to endure loss in life and resorts to escapism. Best case scenario, she is able to adjust and accept and embrace what is, and forge a new identity for herself. But barring that, she's really better off disappearing into a fantasy world (in the TZ for real) and sparing those around her from her continuing misery.
