The Fourth Rail - Critiques
Don gives Local #1 his "Best Of The Week", and also sees superpowers:
"...time and time again, as the young woman continues to replay events, tweaking them each time to achieve a different result. But even her abilities can't turn a bad situation into a good one....
One could interpret the repetition of events as the main character playing possible scenarios through her mind before finally taking action, but given that Demo was a series about special people in mundane or unfortunate circumstances, I expect the same holds true here. Wisely, Wood doesn't play up the superhuman/supernatural elements in the story, but instead focuses on the reality of an ugly situation from different perspectives. The boyfriend's extreme behavior and inability to think clearly rings true, and the heroine's sense of being trapped by her bad decisions has a genuine feel to it as well..."
