Review: 2020.387 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s a bit like the plot from Goundhog Day except with the world coming to an end over and over.

On a different level, it’s about Lauren and Kala having the time to work out the problems in their relationship.

Con: I guess we’re supposed to assume the temporal wormhole thing eventually worked. And that Lauren and Kala are good again. Not sure why we’re supposed to believe that, though.

  1. I guess it's because Lauren finally stops worrying about both the end of the relationship and the world.
