Stunning
17 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Excellent story. It's been a while since I have seen it, but my brother has it on tape when it first aired.

It is definitely a story ingrained in my memory, and some day I may borrow it and watch it again.

Very educational and enlightening and well done.

It wasn't afraid of tackling this subject and adressing it without some repercussions of political correctness.

Could have had more to it, definitely, but this could serve as a possible prototype to future stories dealing with history and time travel, a Hollywood fave.
