Storyline

In a basement, Mr. Resister, who's made out of wires and spare parts, appears at the end of an electric wire. He sees a bowling trophy and cuts off the arms of the bowler atop. The bowler gives chase, organizing other trophies to join the hunt. Mr. Resistor falls into and escapes from various traps, including being caught in a mouse trap and, with the help of his power cord, turning it into a motorized cart. The trophies keep attacking, but Mr. Resistor stays a step ahead. In the background is an plaster Greek statue, a man without arms. Mr. Resistor, the bowling man's arms, and the Greek statue are headed for catharsis. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

He Is Wired to Do Things
24 July 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Mr. Resistor is hodgepodge of wires and circuits. He is obsessed with his and others' arms. He routinely gets crushed or runs out of power, but there is a kind of omnipotent electric wire that enters when the chips are down. i don't know how promising this is but it was fairly entertaining.
