Firesign's first and most famous album-length production focuses on the "five ages" of George LeRoy Tirebiter, his life on display through the prism of television where the 24/7 shows and commercials are at once familiar and alien, the boundaries of past and future are blurred and dislocation is the order of the day. In the end, selling out may be George's only logical choice - but is it the best choice he can make?.
