Decent episode. Good set up. Coherent plot. While not my favorite, an enjoyable episode overall.

Phil

A very thought provoking episode. All workaholics and company line pullers should listen to this one.

Mack

A couple commercials included (YAY!!), very good sound quality, decent (arguably believable) story.

EmKay

Good story like a modern day morality tell.

Edward

Wow. Great morality tale about age discrimination. In 1982 my dad was fired after 31 years and just months before full retirement. While age discrimination is now illegal, the US is still youth idealizing and getting more so. Sigh... Some things change and stay the same.
