This is another easy one room drama piece that serves its purpose without changing the world in which it is played out too much. The idea that words that are spoken onto a tape could take on the physical form of their description, and can then be just as easily negated by taking that piece of tape and destroying it, is an original one and works well. It’s also amusing when Gregory’s wife Victoria doesn’t believe he can do this, even when she twice witnesses him creating and then erasing such physical objects.
The twist works nicely when he goes to his safe and pulls out a tape labelled Victoria and offers it to her. The fact that she goes ahead and erases herself from existence nicely puts a top on the episode. As does the final scene, where Gregory even erases Rod Serling as he options out the end of the episode.
Rating: If only it was that easy. 4/5
