Zoned Out: The Twilight Zone- Replay (2019)

Another week and another Episode in the latest TV Revival.  Will the quality stay high?
A Mother is driving her Son to College and wants to document the day.
When he asks her to rewind the tape, she does and...time itself rewinds!  Say what?!?
Things keep going badly, no matter what she does.  All of the bad endings seem to revolve around this one Cop.
Can she do anything to break the seemingly-inevitable chain of events?

To find out, watch the Show.  They have other Shows too- no lie!
So this is the one that made a bunch of people mad, huh?  This one is not exactly subtle.  If you somehow didn't figure out what this one was about, I...well, I don't know what to say.  This is the Sky- it's Blue.  The Sun is bright and Donald Trump has weird, fake hair.  If we can talk about something besides the obvious, the Acting and Direction are both quite good.  Everyone feels 'real' here, which is always appreciated.  The gimmick of rewinding time is nothing, but it is used well here.  They make it connect to a number of Themes that are important too, so bonus there.  This is definitely a Social Commentary Episode.  If that bothers you, watch the next Episode instead.  The original was chock full of them, including an hour long Episode about how Nazis are bad.  Besides, consider the face behind this revival.  Is that really a surprise to you?  I mean, really?!?
Next time, a tale of a stranger in a small Town.  I'm sure he's just there to see the World's Biggest Ball of Twine.  See you then...
