Simply crashes upon takeoff, going nowhere in a hurry, sniffing around for pop culture overkill and domestic depression insight it never makes a genuine play to explore.

As a 1992 state of the art video sci-fi satire, not bad.

Has its moments...a second-rate screenplay is given a first-rate treatment by underrated director/cinematographer Peter Hyams.

John Ritter and Pam Dawber take a trip through television Hell (Jeffrey Jones is the Devil) to rescue their children. It's hilarious and has several parodies of popular television programs. My favorite was the crash-test dummy testing.

Great fun of a shamefully over-looked knocked out satire on TV. I really like the couple mouses and a robot cat cartoon scene. John Ritter's hilarious and that memories him back to his old TV series - 'Two's Company' in that movie.
