Awful
22 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was probably one of the worst episodes of the entire series. 3 aliens, scrambled story, a predictable plot and nothing amazing whatsoever. Overall this is one of those episodes that stops "Amazing Stories" from being the next kin to the Twilight Zone. Thankfully there are episodes in season 1 and 2 that more than make up for this waste of time.

Don't write the entire series off tough, in my opinion the episodes get better as the series goes on. I think season 2 especially has some truly amazing stories. So if you can get your hands on the season 2 DVD it will be well worth the money!
