This question already has an answer here:
Does anyone know a SF TV short story in which there were blue men who helped "stage" our world- at least the parts we saw, on a minute by minute basis.
So, at each minute, everyone would be in the "world" that was built for that minute, then they would go on to the next "minute world". The blue men were in the future minutes building most of reality, but only the parts that would be looked at at that minute (to save work, I think - why build something that will not every be "used")
And they were in the past tearing down all the previously lived minutes.
It was kind of a behind the scenes look at why when you set your keys down and come back to them, they aren't there. Then you look again a few minutes later and they are there. The reason in the show was that the blue men building that minute forgot to include your keys, but the next group got it right.
Years later, my wife and I still refer back to that show, so I would like to find out what it was and see if I can find a copy somewhere.
